But there is this stubborn provincial singing in me oh each time

"Little bird have you got a key?
Unlock the lock inside of me
Where will you go?
Keep yourself afloat
Feeling old until the wings unfolded
Caught me a long wind
Where will we go?
Keep ourselves afloat

I caught a long wind
A long life wind
I got to know the sky
But it didn't know me"
- Feist, "Caught a long wind"

the world stops at the window

Warm nights on the roof, the moon full over my heart:

You in mid-air; send in the clowns

I went to a parade -- THE parade, as far as Portland goes -- on Saturday for work. I can't believe it, but I actually liked it.

They danced to "Who Let the Dogs Out"


Centennial man Bubbles! Send in the clowns
Watching In-step Crawl
Cheer One more time around again High School Band

And so for you, I came this far across the tracks

I'll stand up on top of the dugout and shout out and wave my arms and hold my tongue

Q plays wiffle ball every Sunday night, so he asked me to join in while I visited him in Omaha. The rest of the players were all boys -- and all but Q over 6-feet -- so I played at a handicap. I got popped in the face but still hit in a few singles. As an outfielder, though, I made a better picture documenter than catcher.

Feelin the sunshine so warm on my skin

Omaha has better Indian food than Portland. Mother India

and give me some sunshine give me sunshine"

Bought a donut / the hole's the size of the entire world

Friday was Donut Day. We squeaked in, late-night, to the shop where Q spent his teenage years. QUITE a sight, that place. Donut shop, Omaha, NE Donut day Donut shop bathroom Donut shop bathroom Untitled
