Meditation before walking to Oakville.. need stories today, woke with this slow momentum that spiraled into something self-propelling and enveloping.  Keep the writings to sell coming, I told myself.. make ‘Mise’ work first, then finish the book.  Music all over the synapses and senses this 28th.. another cup of coffee, $20 budget, surplus toward my winery— or just me.  People already walking by looking in, I can tell they’re annoyed they can’t taste now.. “Toooooo bad,”  I say from behind that glass, safe here with my appellation.

Carpe journal at ready, like I’m headed to duel the day.
