Last April, when I was knocked out of my orbit by the death of my son, Zafer, I decided to give up on speaking gigs.
Tonight is Arlo’s last night in Pittsboro. He’s off to Canada. Then parts unknown. We are staring down “empty nest” in earnest.
Our friend Chris Lucash died yesterday. His protracted battle with ALS is now over.
Recently Brooksie asked me about what sort of spiritual environment we had provided our children.
After Zafer, the thing I miss the most is my brain.
I went to the Plant for the first time yesterday.
Tami, Arlo, and I are re-emerging into our worlds. We scare some people, and want to hide from others.
In high school I learned that guilt was a wasted emotion. I think I read that in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
It’s a clear blue Sunday afternoon in Moncure. The house is strewn with remnants of ragers gone by, and we are down to just Tami and me.
I’m well known for hating paper products. Especially at the Plant, where they often end up as litter. Which I get to pick up.
