We had the exterior of the house power washed today, and the roof treated for moss, etc.  I sweltered, bouncing out occasionally to check on progress and ask questions.  Damn. It's hot.

I'm obsessing over that Buzzy Linhart CD to the point where the songs have invaded my dreams.

Received the first half of the Marsh Hawk prize money. Don't tell anybody but I'm probably going to act on a fantasy and buy this beautiful electric guitar I've been eyeing in a window downtown (it has a Wang Bar!).
For some reason this reminds me of a comment Jessica Grim once made.  We were schmoozing and I asked  her why she supposed Bruce Andrews and me seem to get along so well when we're together.  She replied: because you're both adolescents.  I love that about Jessica--her ability to, with humor and accuracy, cut to the heart of things.

I'm reading Eric Fischl's Bad Boy.  I always enjoy artist and writer memoirs/ biographies.  I love discovering how an individual discovers what it is it can do.  It being the operative word.
