Fighting off cold. Went…

Fighting off cold. Went to bed at 11, just woke up now. Must get dressed and get in to cafe. Goal -- 2000 words today.

Still reading the Sidhwa book; interesting. Told from the pov of a small Parsee girl during India's partition (but with adult language/perspective).

Oh, one more thing. e.e. cummings just had a birthday, so in honor of him, and in celebration of my own love life, which has been more blissful than usual lately...

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
--the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

-- e.e. cummings
