the plunge

The last leg is booked. Done. It’s a red eye, for the effect of stepping on a plane in a place so familiar and waking up somewhere brand new. This is maybe not an awesome idea considering all the time changes and two plane switches, but it has this sort-of romantic quality.

For the sake of closure, marking the transition is probably important. Closure, of course, isn’t important for any kind of mental stability or emotional wholeness; humans aren’t that special or that frail. It’s just a nice thing to have, a sort of human pleasure, like the smell of different kinds of smoke depending on the season, or being in a warm crowd of foreign bodies but feeling really close to them through music or some great speech.

Work goes. I’ve had my worst month ever in terms of productivity and keep trying to come up with ways to trick myself into doing what I’m supposed to do. When you’re a self indulgent libertine I guess it’s hard to come up with your own personal bribes?
