Having the time of my life in New Orleans

One doesn’t know quite what it is that one wants to get off the chest until one’s got it off. T. S. Eliot (via theparisreview)

Writhing Your Name


my heart to you

between glow and glower,

bow and bower,

my skin the same,

a sin coiled into skein;

the sigh between haunt and hunt,

strung between lunge and hunger,

i teethe,

i writhe your name

i teethe,

i tithe your name.

-Kalliope Amorphous

I’ve heard the road to every truth
it’s just a cul-de-sac,
there’s ladies and the lions there 
but you know it’s just an act.
You search the world for the milk of the pearl,
she always takes it black,
but you’ll love her till it all goes dark,
you’ll love her even after that …

fall camping >

The idea of getting lost and pitching a tent wherever I wind up sounds so appealing to me right now. Fall weather, please hurry.

Miles Davis, circa 1950s.
One (very small) chunk of my favorite bookshelf that I brought home from The Paperback Rack when it closed. Most of the books in this picture came from there as well. Guys I really miss that place.
While cleaning out the attic at my old job (an independent bookstore that, sadly, went out of business last month), I found a dusty box of old records that hadn’t been touched in ages. Dan Fogelberg, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Vikki Carr, Don McLean… Too many classics to name offhand. I’m still heartbroken about the store closing, but I’m thankful to have been able to bring home a little piece of its history with me.

"No man is brave that has never walked a hundred miles. If you want to know the truth of who you are, walk until not a person knows your name. Travel is the great leveler, the great teacher, bitter as medicine, crueler than mirror-glass. A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet." —Patrick Rothfuss.
