Cool Morning

called me about 7:30pm to ask why I wasn’t at the Frantic Rabbit. Sorry, Gary and Christina and the other two poets. I got caught up in working on White Wolf stuff, and lost track of the time. I’m sorry for bailing on dinner and lazer tag following poetry, too, but I had the sense that something strange was coming down the pike.

Turns out I was right.

Around 9:30, called. She and I had a somewhat difficult phone conversation that lasted until almost midnight. We’ve revised our plans for the weekend so many times that we’ve wound up not pleasing anyone, least of all ourselves. She was unhappy, I was getting angry, and we almost broke up. We actually talked about that for a while, even. I think we got a handle on some of the hard things that have been going on between us for weeks, and I’m prepared to make some effort to try to get through this. I’m more hopeful about our relationship today than I’ve been in a while. Love you, .

It took me a long time after that to go to sleep, though. I think I actually went to bed around 2am. Slept through t’ai chi, slept through my morning writing slot, and now I’m getting ready to go to Auburn to get my oil changed and have my car go through its 3,000 mile check-up. We’ll see how that goes.

UPDATE:: OK, change of plan… not going to Worcester, because they can’t accomodate me for an oil change and the 3,000 mile checkup today. I’ll have to do it tomorrow. This is the problem with forgetting to make appointments. White Wolf writing day today until 3pm or so, when I’ll head to Natick. Sigh.

I have my feature in Natick, MA this evening. In theory, there might be lazer tag after at a place in Natick. I may be up for it, but we’ll have to see how things go at the reading tonight.

  1. The post did not upset me. I just wanted you to know I had posted something to a smaller list of friends who know me a bit better. I don’t like to have too much of my personal stuff out there to people who don’t know me well. Especially in this forum. My impression is that judgements are easily made from others if they just read and know me from here.
    I have not written that may private entries. I can show you how to do it.If you go to manage and then friends you can create lists and such.
    I’ll add you and that way you can see some comments.
    Love you

  2. Dear love,

    I’m sorry if posting this entry has upset you. I didn’t know you’d written private entries before now; actually, I’m not sure if I know how that’s done. I think that it’s OK for you to keep a private journal, and if you don’t want to share, you don’t have to.

    Why don’t you think on it and decide whether you want me to read it or not, and send it or not as appropriate?

    Love you.

  3. Re: our operators are standing by…

    Thanks, I appreciate that.

    I’m going to pass through Worcester on the way to Natick tonight, if you’d like to come on down for some poetry. And I’ll get you home again, too.

  4. our operators are standing by…

    should you need to call someone…and none of them are home so you’re down to me. i consider you a friend, and so, am there for you if you need. we don’t really know each other, but I hope that could change, and change is inevitable, so goes the chinese wisdom.

  6. I posted a private entry about whats going on. I can send it to you offline. It felt a little too personal for everyone to read so I jsut sent it to a few friends,if you want to see it I can add you or send it to you.

    Love you too.

    Sorry that things were tough last night, but VERY glad you have worked things out. Long distance relationships are soooo difficult. Jay and I did it a couple years ago (my first year here) and came SO close to breaking up…and we had already been together for 4 years.
    I can’t believe that you’re already in need of a 3,000 mile checkup! You drive as much as we do 🙂

    Have fun at poetry tonight

    It seems that the school year (and other stuff) is already starting to take hold of us, and we probably won’t be seeing each other again until December vacation :-p. So, maybe I’ll run into you sometime 😉
