…it seems like all i do is work…i’m feeling abit friendless of late. working weekends didn’t help my social life either. anyway there are still some bugs in the system.i’ve got to get used to working again and i’ve got to learn how to right again, right. i mean write. i’ve been away from my muse too long or at least not on speaking terms with her.

i don’t think that i ever knew how to write…it was (is) something that i just did (do) akin to breathing or my heart beating
been away so long i hardly knew the place.
number 6 from the things to do list
6. get back into shape!!!
anyway ANYWAY anyWay anyWAY aNYWay anYway ANyway anyway–

much love. david.
