Spent a while talking to Jed on iSight this morning; I am a Mac geek! Very pleasurable; I love being able to see him laugh from hundreds of miles away. Even if it is a little jaggy. :-)
Not making so much progress on work yet. Some e-mails, did dishes, but mostly finished reading Jonathan Carroll's White Apples. I liked it, but somehow I don't think I've liked any of his books as much as The Marriage of Sticks. Possibly just because I read it first? There is a certain similarity to his books, I must admit.
Also ended up writing a couple long letters to David this morning. We were talking yesterday and the subject of our long correspondence back in Philly came up -- I lost all those letters in a hard drive crash, but he had some, and sent them to me. So I spent some time last night and this morning reading them. It's surreal, reading old correspondence. So many details I didn't remember, or remembered wrong. And some things I was so certain of in '96, when I was 25; it shocks me a little, seeing how different my attitude has become. It's odd -- mostly I feel congruent with my younger self; I feel like I haven't changed radically since I was, oh, sixteen or so. Just become more me, if that makes sense. And yet these letters make clear that that isn't true -- that some of my fundamental attitudes, about love and relationships primarily, have changed quite a bit in just seven years.
It's disturbing, is what it is.
