23 Jan | Baltimore> Perhaps our last trip to Charm City. Our bedder-½ specially glad she dont gotta commute here no mo. Stay'd the nite in Fell's Point along the water. Bin reading Prayers and Parables by Paul Maliszewski, our onely lit frend in D.C. Strange title, specially w/ the foto of sum vestal statchew on the cover u mite think its a sorta relidgeus book of devotional novenas or sumpin, but if u look carefully the face of the statchew is sorta fuckd up + then when u start readin' u realeyes they aint prayrs at all, nor parables for dat matter, at least not dat we cd tell at 1st, theys like typickle short stories, but as u read a few mo, u realeyes they is sorta incantations, like Zen koans, to be recanted ova + ova, to reveil the meaning. I mean, on the surfizz they's about typickly mundane drama, some goody 2-shoes bickering w/ his girlfriend, etc. then u realeyes whoa the petty shit is often most reveiling + just when u think everything is hum-drum hunky dory, sum subtely demented d-tail creeps in that leafs u feelin' unsettled. These the sorta stories u meant to read mo than 2x.

«He looked to his girlfriend and shrugged. He tried to smile, too, and he continued to rub. Why he rubbed—or when he might stop—he had no idea. His hands were tired. His fingers cramped, but he rubbed her feet as if the very action—the simple, repetitive, mindless motion—might lead him somewhere new.»

And then a story or 2 later he rites: «Doing something over is the real work of this life.» This god us to thinking bout this idea of redoing, b-yond jus duing for the 1st time. And th diffrence tween 1st + last time. Hoo nose how menny times weave done dis trip to Baltimor. Weve stayd at this hotel b4. And this = our 2° time moving to Rome (not to menshun countless trips visiting, inklooting a 6-month stint back + 4th in 2015. NYC the same, weve left + returned 3x (to live, again, hoo nose how menny times visiting) not quite able to quit her. B4 dat, we had to quit Tucson 2 or 3 times to git her outta our sistem. Same w/ our bedder-½, we broke up 1 or 2x before hooking up for the long haul. Whatever it is u revisit, each time new d-tails git reveiled, perhaps in revelation, or dat prawvide closure. More + mo lately we find ourself revisiting places + rereading books, rewatching films. As Paul says, this is the real work of life.
