Well, I feel fat and satisfied. I've eaten a lot of life. I've been to all kinds of nice restaurants: Thai, Indian, Moroccan, German, English, Carribean, you fucking name it. Indian's my favorite; If I could afford a personal chef, I'd eat nothing but Indian food. Well, we could slide in a little sushi now and then, and maybe an occasional American breakfast, an omelette and some bacon or something.
I've had lots of road trips and day dreams. I've seen Hawaii, Canada, the American Southwest, fucking Sweden. Sweden was an icier version of Washington, and with commies. Hawaii was cool. I remember eating at some super-posh restaurant called GayLords, on the island of Kauaii I think. We had some kind of flaming liquor drinks and I had a filet mignon. Then I love funky, cosmopolitan Seattle where it always seems like Kurt Cobain just turned the corner.
Everywhere I've gone: I've thought, I've read and I've dreamed. I've walked in a lot of Gardens. I've shared books with so many authors. I've gathered cans to buy paint and brushes to make my inspired but slap-dash paintings. I've gone to so many special lectures, documentaries, art-parties, etc. I've learned from most of them and the rest at least stirred my mind.
I've listened to all kinds of music from super-modern classical to blues to industrial. So often, I come across an old favorite album and it takes me back to some distant chapter of my life. Green Day's "Kerplunk":The budding rock star- an ackward but powerful chick magnet. Nirvana's "Inutero": The isolated, hateful high school scholar. Marilyn Manson's "Mechanical Animals": the social, long-haired sophomore stoner. Sublime's "self-titled": the heart-broken lush and Ephedra addict.
One thing you know: there will always be another song... if anyone's listening.
