Y’all: I’m fine. Every time I disable a certain PHOTO- and VIDEO-SHARING platform, everyone assumes I’m dead. Listen, sometimes you just got to flip the lights off on that stuff, and lay low. I am laying low because I have to make as much money as soon as possible, and I can’t rightly do that when I’m seeing the lives of others through a glass darkly on the world wide web, when I can scarcely see my own. And why do I need money? Everybody needs money—that’s why they call it money. Among many reasons, it’s mostly because I got to get out of town and go to London to see Sirengirl, and then to Berlin to see my friend Jess, and so on. I think I’m going to take Lufthansa for the first time. Man apparently it’s pretty nice. Yeah. Why not.

I have been pulling things out of my closet and taking pictures of them to entice other people to buy them. I am selling as much as I can until I have only what I need. I’m getting pretty close! And I am for real going to sell my car this time, much as I love that god dang thing. Really I haven’t driven it in a month . . . I’ve been walking everywhere, especially at night, going all over the place. I checked the other day and I’ve been walking seven or eight miles a day . . . sometimes more. Really that’s not even that much! If you ever show up somewhere and tell someone you walked there, they say something like, “Oh my god! That’s like two miles!” Y’all, two miles is baby stuff. C’mon. You can walk two miles like half an hour, for god’s sake.

And what else? I have been reading and writing. I have been alone with Dante. I’m having me a good ol time over here, when you really get down to it. I spent the last six months hanging out with people nonstop. Soon I will go back to that, because that is what comprises most of my life: being friends with people, and being around them as often as possible. But for now I got this thing going on, and it is very good in a different way.


Sirenlady: Watch that mailbox.

Katrijn: I wrote you a longish email today. I will send it tomorrow afternoon.

Tombo: My faithful child, I will see you at DUDES DONE WRONG this Thursday, if not sooner. Bless your heart, you always show up.

Alayna: Let’s freakin do something in the next few days.

Speaking of days: I had a really nice day today. I didn’t speak to a single other human being . . . I just spoke to Dante. We went outside and took naps and I held him while I watched a movie. Here are two cute pictures of him I took:

Rest in peace, dude.

Anyway: I guess I’m going to go to sleep!!
