More from a blue weekend in Wilmington.
Break is full. It is a pleasant place to be at, but I thought wrongly when I assumed I’d have all the time in the world to take care of business back in Chapel Hill//Carrboro. Eleven hour work days and oddly spaced breaks = life right now.
That said, it feels good to not worry about essays, projects, performances. . . yes, even for just a week.
I’m happy I stayed. I stayed and felt no real need to leave. I guess I’m changing. . .
“Consciousness itself does not hinder living in the present. In fact,it is only to a heightened awareness that the great door to the present opens up at all. Even a certain amount of interior verbalization is helpful to enforce the memory of whatever it is that is taking place. . . ” – Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
