I Can't Remember When the Earth Turned Slowly

[i go back in time]
[april 27, 2008]

To be alive in the summer heat. The days blur together, I don't know how muc
h time has passed. I don't know why I feel the way I do. I am connected by a thread. I feel like jumping today. I am happy to be alive today. I should open the window, let summer inside. I think today is unexplainable, beyond words. They never do anything justice anyway. We should just listen to the music.

Oh, to be vague. I can't piece together the meanings of my endless stream of thoughts. Perhaps they are meaningless. The cd skips but the world doesn't stop. To be alive is to b
e everything, but even in death something remains. The world is alive, simply, as are we, simple, the only thing we have, simply, the things that tie us to one another. So we must hold on tight because, simply, the world spins and we can never get dizzy and fall off. We must keep our feet firmly on the ground. Stay close to the earth, simply, to tie our hands together, we will stay so close to each other, the earth and I, we will spin together and I will lie firmly in the dirt so I don't fall away. And we will spin, so simply, the earth and I, we will spin, and spin, and spin and I will never get dizzy and fall off.
