Cavalier Oceanfront (July 13 2014)[i]

☼ ○ ▬

I find myself exploring the halls and rooms of London Bridge Baptist Church (my mom used to be one of the cleaning ladies here – I have countless memories as a child). I locate an arcade/game room where some of my favorite pinball machines were. The Addams Family and Star Wars. Near a utility closet I run into a lady making some kind of stew in a cauldron. There's tumbleweed, pine straw, and blueberries inside it. I guess she's one of the workers here. Later on, I'm running away from somebody down the road. I'm given two horses that also function as bicycles. Going too fast around a curve I crash into the bushes. It appears on accident but it also serves the purpose to thwart off the people coming after me. One of them stops to sniff around where I crashed but he doesn't find anything. I'm safe.

Waking up at 11:15 a.m.

All day shift at China Wok.

Video conversation with Ana...

Egg Sandwich with Vegan Cream Cheese and Tomato. Salsa Tortilla Chips. Honey Green Tea.

Sunday. Sunday. Sunday. As a delivery driver for a Chinese restaurant you can always count on Sundays to keep these wheels rolling. It's one order after the other. Non-stop.

Ana visits. While I handle the phone orders I watch Ana combing her black mane outside the glass windows. I run carrying orders to deliver.

Me: "You're like some kind of lion."

Driving around on every side of town. We catch up on our weekends sharing our discoveries and thoughts. I had a lot more to share than her and get lost on a rant about the risks of loaning money to people. Meanwhile, the night falls on us without any warning. We both catch the looming moon behind the trees off Virginia Beach Blvd. It looks just like a storybook moon with a couple streams of gray clouds overshadowing it.


Jes calls Ana on the phone while I'm driving.

Ana: "While you were walking your dog I was wokking with Robert."

The deliveries keep going long after Ana leaves to hang out with Jes. A fruitful night for work. I can't complain.

Back home.

Tofu with Broccoli, Onions, Carrots, and Rice in Garlic Sauce.

Watching Homefront (2013).

Sleep 3 a.m.
