I miss the quiet of my dungeon and the wind through Oregon’s trees. Its sunny here and i am about to be in the Du with all my friends again and its gonna be hard to leave. I am trying to stay for one month but i can feel the pull of oblivion on the road. Its going to be hard not to just disappear again. but i won’t. don’t worry nico …
i love shanghai, the city usually treats me very well, but i am reminded every time I come here why i could never live here. my best times here are either drunken madness or yapping with old shanghainese … i love making old people laugh here. they don’t really get my Sichuan hua … and the cabbies aren’t pimps like in the Du … so many damn buildings.
I am reading Wendell Berry’s book, Sex, Economy, Community and Freedom. i highly recommend this book. It is right up our US alley (me and the Tribe) and it informs my summer project that I am doing with ole Lace-dawg.
Go out and get it. (mad love to Jen for the hook-up)
