and the truth is that no, i haven’t been writing here that much lately. not because i don’t want to, but because i honestly think that i have not been behaving or feeling in such a way that other people might find compelling. i think i’d be venturing dangerously close to the common person’s perception of what blogging is, namely “ate a sandwich today,” which used to really infuriate me. hey, i’m interesting and vital! i matter! and if i want to talk about a sandwich i ate, you better believe i’m going to sell the hell out of it. you’re going to know just how great this sandwich was. however, i can’t even think of the last great sandwich i had. i had a bad burrito yesterday and some great noodles before that, but that’s not anything. the real deal is that i’ve been working a lot, and i’ve been drinking cans of beer on the weekends, and thinking about taking trips to places but mostly staying close to home. i’ve been writing professionally and i really like doing that, and i think about all the great people in my life and how i’m lucky to know them, and how i can’t wait to see the ones that don’t live near me as soon as possible. how fucking boring is that? answer: trick question! it’s not boring, it’s just not inspiring me to write a thousand words. it’s not a story. it’s a life. and just because i’m living it right now, doesn’t mean i won’t think about it in a month, or a week, or a year, and want to write something really electrifying about it. something that would make my hands and your eyes explode!
you know what was really strangely beautiful, though? this weekend, two friends came to visit from new york, and on their last night in town, i watched them both instagram a sunset from my balcony. and it really made me think that we’re all connected. it was like that song somewhere out there from an american tail. except, you know, with iphones.
