Sympathy for the Rich

Studies in Idleness

Last night's visit to the Shimmering Park: met another neighborhood guy. He told me all about his heart attack and how bad he's been feeling since. I diagnosed depression, and he'd heard it was a common after-effect, and somehow, he said, the news cheered him. Relieved him of some responsibility. But after my aneurysms and his MIs, we got round to fun and games, maybe organizing poker parties for the winter. Playing with matchsticks, as we're all on disability; I have wooden matches!

Determined, anyways, to have some fun. Because why not. Because we've had those moments, all of us by now, how this could be it. It changes you.

Or just brings stuff into deep relief.

Today: tried to Twoot, tried this and that. Joints disagree, headed to palliation, maybe Vicodin haze.

Writer's Block: Take me back

Is there ever! It's Black Water by the Doobie Bros. I was with Gary. I was turning his leftover turkey debacle into a decent dinner, and he started dancing with me in the kitchen. Thanks for the memory! I gotta go fire up iTunes.

Writer's Block: Most memorable concert

What was the most memorable concert you ever attended? What made it so magical?
I have two. A few years ago, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra did Bach's Magnificat and Mozart's Requiem. Incredible, and it was my birthday.

Also, the first time I saw the Beatles.

I succumbed. Come visit.


Degrees of Separation: Mayfield and Bob Dylan
