Well here I am sitting at SFO, my flight leaves in an hour and a half. I apologize for not writing anything in the last couple months. I’ve been busy, I guess, but most especially, FRAZZLED over the last two days. I’m going to try to update it a lot though once I cross the ocean. People seem to be asking for that.
It didn’t hit me that I’m leaving for Japan until I was waiting at the ticket counter. It was just a big overwhelming rush of emotion. I’m starting a brand new life in Japan in just a few hours. It was the perfect antidote to the insanity that I had been feeling over the last few days. I still put everything off until the last minute, but everything always works out in the end. First of all, I’d like to make a tip of the hat to craigslist. They saved my ass last night. At about 5:30pm, I put a couple of ads saying I was giving away all this stuff. Most of it I got rid of within an hour and a half. I was amazed. Someone even picked up that big old computer desk of mine that’s such a bitch to take apart and put back together three times. Took only ten minutes this time. And this one woman just came in and started pointing at any old thing and I just said, “It’s yours”. Got maybe two hours of sleep last night because I was so busy doing shit. Thinking in fragments. This terminal is all Japanese today, it’s as if I’m already there. OK, I need to relax or something. More later.
