Conscious Catholicism

It’s very strange I was purusing through pictures of the NEW Santa Monica Blvd… and it got me to thinking about my life in LA, all 12 years of it. It was strange and difficult and not entirely unpleasant. I have no desire to even visit there anymore, seeing as I have no connection other than William and other assorted and discarded ex’s. I can’t imagine what my fascination with LA was, and I was definately fascinated with it when I was there, and even for a period after I moved up here to Seattle. Now I have this obscession with Florida, not the gulf-side but the Atlantic side of the state, maybe it’s listening to one to many Acura commercials? I think that it is also, that I want to be closer to my family espcially now that there is no one living on the West coast except for me. Don’t get me wrong I love Seattle, and my life here is full and happy, inspite of my natural cynicism. I love the weather, the geography, the aura, people stores coffee and all the good things there is here, big city small city feel and like others have pointed out, Seattle is San Francisco without the crime, gentrification and expensive apartments.

On another note, I’m still feeling like doody, my glands are swollen and not in a good way! I just got an Amazon order at work yesterday, one of the albums was Nicola Conte, Boss per due, I love this album, I’m going to order more I think. I am also expecting my new scanner to arrive tomorrow, it’s an Epson Perfection 636. I wanted something that I could hookup to as many of the machines at home that I have, mac, pc, beos, os2… .

Almost time to leave thank god, I am so looking forward a nice rainy weekend at home.

more later.
