I think Seneca is right: life feels longer the more you engage with it. (Look how short life felt to the poet Larkin. Look how little he did with it.) I should be loving sculpture! But I have not gone deeply into sculpture. Instead, having been utterly insensitive to sculpture, I fill the time that might have been usefully devoted to sculpture with things like drinking and staring into space.

listening to abs for my morning walk and mostly thinking about camp…music fades into the background of my mind and my brain is churning out a mental list of things to do today and i was thinking, i can send out this or that reminder now that camp is 2 weeks out…and right then they sing “2 weeks in and i still haven’t figured you out” and i thought that was really cool.
