Friends only.

Friends only for the most part.

I have to be brave. I have to get over it and do things that scare me. Or else this is going to eat me alive.

Personal resolves:

1. Refuse to be anyone's consolation prize. I deserve more than that.
2. Learn to be more secretive again. I think I'm in need of a Margot Tenenbaum chapter.
3. Start singing in the shower.

It's really strange to think about where I was a year ago. And how much has changed. And, yet, how much has stayed the same.

I have learned a lot about myself. And how right I was before I questioned it.


Mostly, I wish I was Teddy Roosevelt. My Law, Diplomacy and Power professor was talking about him in class today and he sounds like he was a really funny guy. He would just pick up a stick somewhere, carry it in the white house and just bang it on stuff. He'd go out of his way to point at things and tap doors and things like that. That's just such a funny image in my mind. I like it a lot.



So I'll speak softly--

Where are you going?

Here, take my sweater.

Today was absolutely beautiful.

I love fall and all that it brings to my life. Including winter. And Christmas.

I'm so busy these days. But I like it, I guess. Keeps me in check. Keeps the cash flowing.

I want to do something artsy. I've been writing again. I think I want to go back to some mixed media things. And I want to make time to do it. Make myself a little studio.

I love my family so much. We are an absolute mess and I wonder every day how we're going to make it to the next, but I really do love us. Life is so short.

Mostly I love Dr. Kleber. I told him on Monday that I had watched The Alamo this weekend on AMC (with Billy Bob Thornton and Dennis Quaid) and that I was fascinated by Davy Crockett. I asked him if he knew of a good biography I could read on him and he said he wasn't sure. But then I went to lunch (or something...) and when I came back, "The Real Life Adventures of David Crockett" was scribbled on my notepad along with the author and the call number from the UofL library. I love that man. I hope I get to go camping with him in October.

Love,

Mary Kate

In no uncertain terms.

I want to be Ana Pascal.

And I need a big dose of punk rock. And a place of my own. And a new touch.



Maybe just an overall fresh start.



The difference this time is that I'm pretty sure I can't do it alone.

Wanna get out of here with me?

Wagon Wheel

Headed down south to the land of the pines
And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
Starin' up the road
And pray to God I see headlights

I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh
I can see my baby tonight

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me

Runnin' from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old-time stringband
My baby plays the guitar
I pick a banjo now

Oh, the North country winters keep a gettin' me now
Lost my money playin' poker so I had to up and leave
But I ain't a turnin' back
To livin' that old life no more

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me

Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Philly
Had a nice long toke
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee

And I gotta get a move on fit for the sun
I hear my baby callin' my name
And I know that she's the only one
And if I die in Raleigh
At least I will die free

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me

I read a Wendell Berry book and an Ayn Rand book all in one day. Today.


My head might explode. Soon.



On to Tolstoy next.

We are each truly alone on this earth, despite our best chance.
