What is it, jezz, 14, no - 16 months. I am sitting in Heathrow, Have had a rousing good time with colleagues in Dublin and Cork and agreed to some crazy addition to our oath, no good to just observe, must we not participate in, The Arab Spring, for instance.. We are celebrating - I am returned of Libya and am alive.
Can almost reach out, touch it, so close it seems now. Go in one door and out another and you are home. Home. Goin Home, say it to myself a few times, chuckle. "Goin 'ome, sir" It's the driver to Lawrence in the end of the David Lean film, a motorcyle whirs by. Wonder if I'll watch a movie, no, wait till home, something on the big screen, strangers in the dark, popcorn.
It is Febuary stop off in Marin, see a friend at the libray, wondrous researcher, tells me to check out this place, fits with the project I've been on. Home now is only minutes away. Hard to say what happen'd, it's Marin , it's not wanting to be an adult most all the time, no wine for breakfast, no more whores and fishermen, home is obligations and scheludes, students and neighbors. I've community there but it's different from what I have found here among the sleepers upon the earth, and neither have I ever encountered such variety and severity of ailment. Untreated. I had no idea, in this past year and some, no idea. There are so many need care. I have these amazing moments in the service that is part my practice, when after weeks workin some poor buger, they crack and bloom and for a moment are lucid and not horrible alone.
So anyway, I'll not be home long it is time to follow the POW WOW trail, eventually north to the "retirement" home and the super POW WOW there. Having been a cowboy some while now, nice to be an Injun for a bit. That is my childhood, Ranchin with my white great uncle, Farming and Hunting with my Indian uncles. But, home on my birthday, 29 June and will gift my one man show, 4 performances, one pay what you Can. Poster is collectable, priced accordingly. Devide the take with some things I like, local, East Bay Habitat for Humanity, Center for Investigative Reporting at Berkeley, this Health Clinic in San Rafael.
That will be the tour this year.
