One thing that has been kind of cool this past month has been that Stagg andI have been out in the city pretty much all day. We left on public transit at 6 this morning and probably won't be back to sleep till late tonight. We've been doing lots of paperwork stuff. A hassle but the good side is being out and about like slackers or flaneurs. Right now we are at a rather famous coffee shop using the wifi. Stagg comes up to me after ordering our coffee and asks what do I tip on $13.00?. I say 13 bucks what the fuck did you order? We're laughing because like he always gets some kind of crazy drink mocha frapaccino orange foamy extravaganza. The situation is tiring though. Lots of line ups in governement offices for id etc. I sleep like shit at grandmas. Her house is right under the landing zone for O'Hare. I thought I was going nuts like I couldn't sleep at all. So I googles "health issues with flight paths". And there is risk. Heart attacks high blood pressure and strokes are higher stats. Wow at least I wasn't imaging things I for sure feel my blood pressure go up during "sleep". Returning to other good things this month is a feeling that a different door has opened. Two friends said two interesting concepts to us. One was that fire is refinement our buddy Tony from our Skylark book club said that. And Jason said how fire is rebirth these metaphors keep surfacing for Stagg and I.
