I am a man of habits.
Simple, I like 'em. I like crits, the same lap around and around.
On Mondays its half price growler fill.
Which is good. Then added movies night too. then, add, cheap greasy Pizza.
I am a loyalist. Married now since 1986. I don't know how, sometimes.
I've become more not resistant to change but more appreciant on not changing.
Even the weather, I'm used to winter, now.
I want to stay with it, that mood, grasp it and make it hang on longer.
I'm plowing through books. the last one, Pete Dexter's, excellent.
I often go to the Philly art museum. and I go back to see my favorites.
the same guard stands at the entrance, and I'm getting to know him, he's more friendly than some of the others. I nod, and walk into the room and right to the one I like most and stand in front of it. Its a large painting. Just stare at it.
"like a fire that consumes all before it"
I get my fill and say goodbye to the guard, and go visit the Duchamp's.
and if I could hold on to it, just a bit longer
been thinking, If a few people want some portraits of themselves taken, drop me a line, I'll do it, for free.
