We had Fall for a week. It was nice. I was able to break out a coat and some boots. I even came down with a flu. And then, today, it was back to 90 degree weather. Only, I still have my quaint Fall zombie flu.
Time is flying by faster than I’d prefer, given that this is my favorite time of year to savor. That’s one of the things I loathe about survival and monetary obligations. A person can get so lost in it that pointless machine of making other people rich that they wake up one day in what feels like the blink of an eye with huge swaths of time having passed yet nothing personal accomplished. .
I desperately want to disappear into a dark underground economy where pleasure and fantasy are peddled and be done with the ‘real’ world. After watching those two presidential debates where being a loud asshole meant ‘winning,’ I want no more of this American society full of stupidity glorified. I want to wake up late every afternoon, don pretty clothes and seduce each second with witty hedonism. I’d like my charisma and charm to fill my coffers rather than someone else’s.
Instead, there is this revolution that must be executed.
