I'm no poet, but here are some sentence fragments:

  Scared to escape

The melody I crafted,

Staring into the ghost I incarnated,

I stood mute as stirrings

Fell silent between us.

In an odd place with the lady friend, hearing back from her once every couple days rather than hours of late. The story I'm telling myself is that we left off in an awkward place last time we met (around a week ago now), but she's saying she's been busy with two huge presentations she's putting on today and next week. Doesn't compute to me, and I'm getting mixed messages from people in my life:

- "You barely know each other, what do you expect? You don't owe each other anything." Valid, nonetheless a bit saddening.

- "You don't want someone who isn't communicative. She's not worth your time." Seems like the other, equal and opposite, reaction.

I guess my question to pubski, how much benefit of the doubt is worth it? Extended an offer to a volunteer event where we'd be helping make food kits for people affected by Irma - which I know we're both invested in. My other guess is that this'll draw a clearer line. Bottom line: regardless of these to trains of thoughts, I'm still getting responses, so there's something. The week I stop getting anything, I guess I'll know - I'd like to not need to guess.

Despite advice to voice "This is the story I'm telling myself [...], does this ring true to you as well?", I think 3 dates might not warrant that level to exploration. That or I'm undervaluing those experiences. What a bunch of schmootz.

Saw Trevor Hall at an outdoor concert last weekend. Suppose it was better that my lady friend wasn't able to make it. They ran over an hour late on top of taking another half hour to fix sound issues as he stood on stage for half of it ready to close us out for the night. On the whole, wish they stuck to the indoor venue that's known for seemless production. Other than that, he played one of his older songs that's grown on me. Got so excited when I heard the opening riff I missed the beginning on my phone's recording. I'll spare y'all the bad quality:

I'd like to think he's referring to the manner with which Hugh marketed them into "cultural icons," despite his saying otherwise. I don't think it necessarily lifted up any gender in particular.

Brevity is key for me tonight.


Steadily moving along with previously mentioned date. Seeing her again tomorrow. Thank you for the words of wisdom. Excited to see how things pan out.


A well-known reporter for a well-known magazine is visiting town to do research on a kid from my alma mater. I was recommended to give a comment since those who would like to are not allowed, too. I'm planning on giving my two cents which is in conjunction with those I'm speaking in place for. I own them for their influence on my life and have no other real affiliation with the subject matter of the article, but I'm wary of privacy is all - hence stupid vagueness.

Anywho, we'll see how it goes, and what the article will look like if/when it breaks.

Wouldn't call it dorky in the slightest. Shit, I like it. A lot.

It's comforting knowing that lee way time could be what's needed...

Thank you!

We've adjusted to a similar style. We had our 'Rosh Hashanah gathering' today which consisted of bagels and lox (and shmear) with a side of apples dipped in honey. Hope yours went well. The idea of the traditions falling away has been on my mind as well granted less than 1% of the world have ever practiced them. That said, it's survived this long, making the question a bit harder to answer than a couple centuries, at least I'd like to think.

Dually noted on relationships, and I value the perspective brought. Full disclosure, of late going with respect has found itself a notable share what I'm searching for, and makes sense how it could tie into why caution would serve as a suppressant to flourishing feelings after a period of introspection. Thank you for your two cents.
