N took me out to a very good lunch. Back at the library now. A few hours of reading, then off to bowl and then maybe, conversation at the coffee-shop. Sounds like the plan for a perfect day. Can I freeze these frames and never step out?

Seems to me that all our energies are most often taken up in the act of preservation. Keeping that which has been gained with supposed effort. Effort that most often in hindsight appears alien and superhuman, like we were motivated by extenuating circumstances to act in a manner that we will never again be capable of replicating. Hold the chair, reserve the seat, book in advance, ensure availability. And then stick tight with superglue. Like 'Boom'. Kaizad Gustad's new film is apparently about three gangsters, Bada Bhai, Medium Bhai and Chota Bhai...Chota wants to be Medium, Medium wants to be Bada and Bada is holding tight...have to see the movie...

Preservation...

Vishnu is my flavour for life, though the aspiration be Shiva...
