Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
The last month has been an extraordinarily full one. It won't soon blend into the background of my grown-up existence, like so many of its predecessors during my time in Tucson. But I'm realizing today just how tired it has left me. Part of my exhaustion is the result of the annual late-May dessication, as the relative humidity plummets towards 5% and the heat rises to the century mark. Part of it is surely triggered by body memories from years past. When you combine that annual lethargy with the emotional vortex I've been swirling in lately, though, the sense of having nothing left in the tank is raised to the third power. I can't remember feeling this tired when I was healthy. It's all I can do to stumble, cans and bottles in hand, toward the recycling bins in the garage. I have a lot I want to write about it, but it looks like it will have to wait for a time when my energy has been restored.

Mode: übermüde
Muse: the endless whirring of the cooling system

I keep sending emails in lieu of emails I actually want to send. I find this placeholder thing distressing.

Have fun with the big E! He was excited about his Spivak encounter. Ask him how it went for me.

Shall leave the sentiment wholly without nouns and will leave this comment wholly without E's account of not being raped by Gayatri Spivak. It seems not right to pillage.

Ask E about the narrative I offered of my intellectual development in an effort to distract him from the fact I had not yet answered his so tell me about your dissertation query. Process is an answer? Or how I fell in love with Laurence Sterne is just my type of question.
