somewhere in the world there exists a black hole that contains all of the words that are lost when when your cell phone cuts out.
i like thinking about that.
would it read like a poem?
what if it read like a brilliant novel?
i have been testing out a new plugin for firefox called adblock, created by my good friend steve and the good people at eyebeam labs. its wonderful! amazing! and it is about to evolve this week into something called ad-art, which replaces ads with art (curated by various people, even YOU). go get it now and cut out those unwanted corporate ads! absolutely free.
had to read more stegner after finishing ‘angle of repose’, started ‘crossing to safety’ this week. took me two months to finish ‘snow’ by orphan pamuk, it was so bleak and dreary, not the kind of book you can easily sink into while nursing your new infant.
our favorite bakery in the world was recently featured in food and wine. we know it as one-fifty-ate. they make the absolute best bagels i have ever eaten in my life! we stayed with the owners Sunny and Bob right before we got married and they treated us to the most decadent and unforgettable breakfasts. if you ever visit portland maine you must go there. I would give anything to be able to go there this afternoon (says she who is not consuming milk products right now due to breastfeeding).
got my first giggle today. i think it was the best thing in the world.
also got a hug in the mail. thank you cynthia (and steve)!
a note to all who write me:
I am so grateful for all the letters and requests I receive. unfortunately i am unable to respond to the bulk of mail that i receive. I hope that you can understand that I am literally flooded with requests every day and I am now having to make very direct choices about how I am spending my time. it is a bit of a struggle at times, but I am learning more about how to manage it slowly but surely.
the new man in my life
