I spent my first paycheck on a flight to Poland

THE GREAT RETURN will be Aug 29.  Calling up the Kaunas Gypsies and all the old Polish and of Poland friends.  Starting in Krakow, heading East to Ukraine to visit old friends and haunts, assuming Putin doesn’t go too far west.

NO MORE SCHOOL!  Just working downtown in the radest of rad locations, with most of my friends in the city.  What an amazing way to live this is. . . with a full-time job with normal hours and no school.  No school.  No school.  Just gypsy music and semi-drunken social justice conversations and repeated watching of the documentary W.H. Auden: Tell Me The Truth About Love, because I can’t find any other background noise that’s quite as fantastic at the moment.

A fine January indeed.
