i am, indeed, reading the Gnostic Bible (barnstone & meyer, eds)
i find it comforting.
merry christmas peoples.
i ate a lot of Chinese food today. it is only 4:30 and i have eaten entirely too much.
cookies, pie, Chinese food. twice.
i wrote 9 pages in the novel today. so far.
i have 20 typewritten pages. about 50 handwritten pages still remain to be added. and typed.
as i am transcribing i am writing and this is making the process meditative and satisfying.
after 100 pages i will actually read it.
and see if anything will survive my editing.
i have been known to cut over half of something. because i deem it to else-ness.
it is fine.
i know what i'm doing.
i have a purpose to what i say. and if i seem sloppy, it is intended that i seem sloppy.
it is 60 degrees outside. i have taken two long walks with the dogs. it is gorgeous and i wish i could run, but, my knee has been quite unhappy and i'm a little scared that i will over-exercise it. i do that. so. i am reading the Gnostic Bible and writing and walking and over-eating [o, i am going to feel so sleepy soon...] today.
i like this whole day to myself business.
nobody is around. not even in the streets.
