Monks Playing Basketball.[i]

☼ ○ ▬

In the gym at the Rec Center just finishing a pickup game in basketball. Students from a high school start to pile in and squat on the floor. There's a projector showing a movie on the wall. For some reason I have control over what's playing. I'm logged into my blog website opening up random entries. A short film version of the blog entries starts playing on the wall for all to see, with professional quality too. I don't remember filming these but somebody did. I feel a little embarrassed that everyone is watching them but the whole room is silent and engaged. On the screen we see a dream sequence: a baby doll, that's understood to be me, talking with a girl on the boardwalk at the beach. She whispers something awkwardly romantic. Then, the baby doll falls over the railing and ends up drowning on the shore. The movie stops. Meanwhile I'm cracking eggs on a grill that seems to be built around the DVD player/projector. The liquid of the egg keeps slipping through the grill making it difficult to cook. One of the teenagers yells out a request to play another movie. I get up and leave.

I meet up with James Nee at the Williams Farm Rec Center out near Witchduck Rd. He wanted to play basketball with me. This Rec Center is fairly new, a lot of the younger kind running around the courts. We run a one-on-one. He's not as practiced as I am so I win 11 to 1. They've got a full court pickup game going on. I join for a while. It's not as serious compared to the Rec Center I usually go to but still a lot of fun.

Back home.

Catching up on writing.
