i remember every hour

austin so far:
recurring dreams
p. terry's french fries
maroon cars
beige houses
housing scams
bbq (duh)
bug bites
red noses
new friends
world cup
lone star beer
kegs on porches
hot yoga
whole foods
ample amounts of water

a prelude

i would grow coconuts if i liked them. my boyfriend's beard always smells like home. and i cannot sleep through a night. i always wake up to use the facilities.

i've thought about escaping sometimes, to places that still have 1930s trains and where people know how to speak at least three languages, going between them as if they are one and you are one with the three. i've thought about it a lot over the past few years. i thought i'd end up in berlin where the wind would push me around and the beer would taste uncanny and the crackling leaves in the fall would remind me of another place altogether. i am however, not ending up there just yet, as austin calls from the part of texas that others rave about and where i might find a man playing a harmonica with his soul in his mouth. i rather hope for that, along with other things like two dogs, longhorns, and bbq. real bbq. i still hope for berlin though, for the place where at least three languages become one and where i may live in a flat for two that includes an old dog named henrik. a distinguished name some would say. as of tomorrow, though, i will enjoy hot summer nights, full of stars and energy, full of lone star beers and swimming holes, and maybe for once, i'll feel sort of southern in a texas kind of way.

future present

on wednesday, i will be in austin swimming in barton springs.

the woods that see and hear

here's the thing: i am moving to austin in 14 days.

here's another thing: i have yet to successfully take advantage of all sf has to offer, but in the next 14 days, i will attempt to do just that. although i will probably just do everything i have been doing since i got here- park, divey bars, mexican food, and good beers with friends.

here's one more thing: my going away party will consist of sneaking beverages and m&m's into a movie theater to see the a team the night before i leave. i will splurge for popcorn.
