Got out tonite to see a dear old friend do a book reading for her new book _The Red Book_ at Barnes and Nobles. Sera Beak set me on my spiritual path way back when we used to date in undergrad, and now everyone else can benefit from her wisdom. Here's the Amazon link:

From a Bird, by Emily Dickinson

A bird came down the walk:
He did not know I saw;
He bit an angle-worm in halves
and ate the fellow, raw.

And then he drank a dew
From a convenient grass,
And the hopped sidewise to the wall
To let a beetle pass.

**Caretaking from 7am to 6pm (ate lunch @ 5), ran out to see my friend Mike Arcega's piece at a group show that just went up at the Asia Society, got to meet Laurel Nakadate, and then came back home for caretaking. Its 12:30 and i'm gonna draw in bed for a bit and get up at 7 all over again. This is the routine. Its exhausting, but I'm gonna miss its reason when all is said and done. Liberation for all from life's ball and chain.**
