I've turned into a fugitive on the run. I'm not even sure I remember what I did in the first place. At any rate, I've got the government and the police searching for me. My purple car is parked at my old church. If I was smart I wouldn't even go near it cause I'm sure they're scouting this area. But for some reason I hang around my car. Elliott is nearby – I pretend that him and I are just looking at the car because we heard about the situation through the news. It's understood that nobody really knows what I look like so it's easy to be stealth by hiding in plain sight. Later on, I'm hiding in my three-story house with Abby, one of my piano/vocal students, and another friend of hers. I really shouldn't be here at all but I need some of my stuff. Somehow they know I'm here and I'm scrambling for a way out. I jump off the balcony and fly high into the sky.

Waking up at noon.
Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maca Powder, Maple Syrup, Raisins, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.
Teaching an hour lesson to Maria at Music Makers.
Then, off to the Rec for a good workout and pick-up basketball games. I play consecutive 4-on-4 matches.
"Larry Bird over here!" one of my teammates blurts out after knocking in a few 3-point shots.
"Yeah I'm old school," I confess.
Daryl, a regular here at the gym, tells me, "You played good today, Larry."
Me: "It was a good day."
Vega Protein Drink.
Grilled PB&J. Fuji Apple. Oolong Tea.
Watching Finding Vivian Maier (2013).
Chores in the kitchen. Cleaning mung bean sprouts. Making granola bars.
After Ana arrives home we make dinner together: Black Bean Rotini with Tomatoes, Portobello Mushrooms, Onions, and a Salad.
We had planned on watching a movie tonight but instead I pull up the Nintendo emulator on my computer and so...video games instead. Ana really really really wants to play Tetris. While she strategically drops down block after block I play the Tetris theme on the pump organ.
Ana's tries her hand at making meringues but unfortunately she replaced the sugar with maple syrup and they come out all melted in the oven.
Diane, my mom's friend who's been staying with us temporarily, has been getting along with everyone. With some of the silly things that Ana says it becomes unbearably funny for Diane.
While Ana sleeps in my bed I finally beat Super Mario Bros 3.
Sleep at 3 something a.m.
