    Visiting your brilliant mind is such a selfish joy for me. In some parallel universe we would have been such beautiful mind fucks, lol. At a base level of understanding, caring, viewing and pondering this world we live in we are kindred spirits. The discussions and passions we could have exploored and shared are perhaps presumotuious and simply an expression of my longing for such mental stimulation self indulgent opportunities i continue to let slip away…

    Unfortunately at a practical and physical level I am exhausted spiritually and fundamentallly as i continue to sacrifice too much of the oxygen around me as I care for my daughter. First brain injured, and just learned this week, brain tumored.

    Please don’t consider sharing such information with the friend who first introduced us. She is not a nurturing soul and not inclined to reconciliation once she’s passed judgement upon a person for their unselfish deeds and motives that disqust and repel her. I think I was an acceptable friend despite having a child because she expected that motherhood role to be a temporary one that would expire eventually.

    The basis for our friendship was actually the shared guilt we felt over Dick’s suicide. Our first time ever spending time alone together was when she drove us to Santa Barbara for his memorial service. And then of course our friendship was blinded over important shared interests like jewelry shopping and Laurie Anderson, lol. But you know all that too well.

    Ack! Sorry for the sojourn from esoteric sublime to unassuaged anger. No, not anger. Disappointment that isn’t paid heed to but in this short limited span as I imagined her reaction to the notion of an ongoing dedication to parenting at the level at which is warranted and not dictated by societal structural norms.

    But hey, I confess to really missing working and Producing Something. The importance I’ve placed on Producing Something tangible of Lasting Value is a sickness and my own defect, lol.

    I hope that you are well and constructing a life of good friends and company while continuing your important sharing of ideas that people really need to consider.

    Feed your head and soul my friend.

    Love, Patricia
