Happy Father's Day!

Dad--where is this picture. Chile or California? I say Chile because we're bundled up.


I'm working on being friendly and less distanced with people I know. I tend to withhold information about myself. Instead, I draw information out of others and then give sagely advice.

I interviewed for a position as a contributing managing editor at a design magazine. I'd write articles about, well, furniture, design, and do profiles of interior designers. It seems a bit absurd. It's an office job, but wouldn't be the worst ever, and it would give me more connections with the world of consumer magazines and graphic design, which would be helpful to my future freelancing career.

I've been editing and trying to write new poems, but I'm in a kind of summer daze. I just want to do yoga and read. Pincha Mayurasana is getting better. As is handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana). Handstand makes me hyper.

In general I feel healthy, even confident, which means I feel strange.


The US-Italy game was terrible. Or else it was very very good. The US looks way better than they have in, like, forever. Ever. I guess I'm happy for the tie. But so many red cards.

You're so great, Lorraine!

As for distancing, it can be hard to judge. I am very bad with "boundary" issues--my boundaries are very permeable down to a certain depth where they become like a bank safe. I guess this is true for everyone, but the depth is different for each person. I think this is an adjustment that's always in process and is different for each relationship. But, what I want to say is that I think you should continue to be more "distanced with people" than I am. "Friendly" doesn't necessarily mean "intimate." You're friendly.

I am going to respond to your email-- I am-- actually now I want to talk to you about this on email too.

Weak boundaries make for great blogs. That doesn’t mean that anyone should have weak boundaries.

going to do a Salamba Sarvangasana now..
