Kids are livin liberally, lovin all their liberty

It seems like everytime I come to New York something totally insane happens. Sometimes it's a good thing- or can eventually serve as some kind of riotous story to tell people. Unfortunately this "riotous insane happening" left somebody dead. And getting struck by lightning just isn't that funny. Nathan and I weren't close or anything but I knew him. Lindsay seems to have taken it the worst of all of us - as she has her personal reasons to- but it's devastating just the same.

I saw Donna and Dan tonight. We went to Brooklyn and had some drinks. This lightning tragedy was obviously a prime topic and Donna and I got all metaphysical and talked about the nature of earthly existence and what is in store, the gaps in peoples' reincarnative memory, my inability to grasp a concept like infinity, and the perils of scientific rationale. For me, this brought on the intense earthly desire to eat pizza so we came back into Manhattan and now I am home, waiting impatiently for some Canadians to arrive via Cleveland.

I went out to the Hamptons yesterday afternoon and went straight to the ocean. It was the first time I've been in all summer and it couldn't have been a better day. The water was so calm and consequently so clear and blue-green. Even my mom went in. It was great to be able to play in the water with her. She doesn't swim really and it was the first time she had been in the ocean in 20 years. All day today she kept saying "That was fun being in the ocean! Let's go to the beach today!" but we went today and she got scared and thought it was too rough for her (after the thunderstorm last night) ...I tried to assure her that if she held my hand past the breakers she would be fine but she made up some story about currents and undertow and I was no match for her meteorological insight apparently- so I went in and made eyes at cute dads.

The Lifter Puller show on Thursday was insanely good and I have the bruises to prove it. Afterwards? Well let's just say that was "insane" too but I can't really talk about it. And not just because I can barely remember. Maybe I am trying not to.

That's all for now.
