Broccoli Mic (May 6 2013)[i]

Waking up at 11 a.m.

Banana. Blueberry Acai Granola Bar. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.

It’s a breezy sunny day but just another slow Monday.

Egg Wrap with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese and Tomatoes. Goldfish Crackers. Coconut Water.

This day just gets slower and slower and slower.


Going through rollercoaster-like interaction with Aysena. But really most of the misunderstandings can be chalked up to her limited English vocabulary, even though she’s super smart. I just feel too much.

Her style when dealing with obstacles is “I better cry once and keep living.” Of course mine involves a series of analytic mind constraints before I can say anything is finished. We both live in extremes. The remedy is a balance of strength and compassion I think.

Continuing to read Hey Princess by Mats Jonsson.

Vegetable Lo Mein.

Back home. Anthony just finished performing a show at Chicho’s and a nice crowd of friends have gathered here. Rachel and Wyatt are back from California. After showing Wyatt the Alenka collage I made a few days ago we get into a brief conversation about the validity of analog art amongst digital art, how easy it is to manipulate any original image, and the direction of art in general.

I join the camaraderie downstairs. Be-bopping. Sipping on beers. A general sense of humor fuels the antics. Ben, our tall black neighbor, is here. He has quite the riot of a personality. Teaching me a few tactics to box fighting.  

Where is Josh (May 6 2013)

Eventually I retreat to my room. I announce, “Okay I’m going to my room and watching Hoop Dreams two times!”

Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Sleep 5 a.m.
