A blurry hazy array of scenarios – revisiting the past – time travel.

Getting out of bed around 1:30 p.m.

Hot Oat Bran with Cinnamon, Brown Sugar, Blueberries, and Milk. Orange Juice. Zinc (50 mg).

Chatting with Aysena on Skype. She’s been in Dubai for the past few days with her mother, whom I have found is just as shy as her. It’s always such a treat to see Ays. Even with all this time that has passed I still don’t fully understand the function of our relationship. In my head it’s not as simple as her being my girlfriend; it feels like something else. Whatever it is I know I enjoy seeing her charming and beautiful face.

Me: “You are a witch. You’ve cast a spell on this little boy.”

PB&J Bagel. Goldfish Crackers. Strawberry Kombucha Tea.

A mini field trip with Devon and Anthony – to Target (Devon uses her gift cards to buy the house toilet paper and paper towels) – then to the thrift store. Kelley and Elliott are on the clock. And Carmen’s here too. Trying on silly jackets and gathering a few dumb things to decorate the house with.

Compiling old letters/notes from high school.

Salad with Almonds and Spicy Peanut Sauce.

Basketball fun with Elliott, Anthony, Kelley, Darren, and Devon. It’s after hours of course when all we have is the glow of the streetlights.


My mom and Jimmy drove all the way from Florida to visit Virginia Beach for a few days. We meet up with them at Chicho’s for Pizza and Beer. Warm embraces from my mom. A beer pong tournament is going on. Elliott and I give it a whirl but lose quickly against Darren and Devon.


Afterwards, I bring mom and Jimmy back to the house. They came bearing gifts of fresh produce like papaya and bags of oranges straight from the heart of Florida.

I spend an hour setting up a new computer for them.

Sleep 4:30 a.m.
