3.1.14

performance art piece where you mainly keep to yourself--accomplishing things you want to accomplish, avoiding fake people, avoiding feeling like you have to have an opinion on things that are not directly related to you, not being passive, accepting the best and worst things in your life with equal love, caring about your people, not identifying with people simply because they try to make you their people, accepting that you may not have many people, never accepting something simply because everyone says it, smashing yourself every once in a while, parading yourself every once in a while, depriving yourself of things that make you feel numbly comfortable, not turning your weaknesses into negative qualities in others, not avoiding hate, avoiding being nice to others as a form of self-preservation, gift-wrapping the things people try to steal from you, booby-trapping the things people try to steal from you, giving up only to be able to come back, and understanding that no matter who you are you are worth roughly half a streak leftover in a toilet in terms of the future and the past.

Good. Moved to Santa Fe. Aviva's going to nursing school, I'm going to St. John's College. We live by a river and eat tacos most days. Hope you can come visit. How are you?

kenny b, may you and your wife live in peace by the river, held tightly together like the ingredients inside a taco.
