Thwarted

I keep wanting to do a lengthy post on doings and narratives and pics, but frankly wifi is shit and I am thwarted. Suffice to say my birthday was awesome, I hit a new decade and am still waiting to feel like a real adult, Happy Solstice to all, there have been gossipy exchanges with bookdealers, and last night I had a terrifying dream about cowboys and aliens and rare books. Also I think I say "fuck" more than most librarians but less than some dealers, and I think this means something but I don't know what.

Also, here's an untitled poem scribbled during this morning's plenary session:

Paper and paper and paper,
Mountains of paper, reams of paper,
Words of trees and songs of pulp,
And sirens of ether, sounding in the distance!

More anon.

Usually the only time I feel like a real adult (I'm 42) is when everything is going to hell. 8P

Glad your birthday was wonderful!

I just hit thirty, and keep thinking, Dude! I'm thirty! And marveling, like I expected to be dead before this happened.

I thought I had about ten years on you. I'm not dead yet(wild misspent youth aside)and I'm glad you're not either. 8D

When I was 16, my 82 year old grandpa told me that we rarely feel any older than about 18-20 in our heads. He was right.

*hugs*
