That's kind of cool, I like it. It's almost like disappointment, but I think that's it's not all negative. It's sort of a bittersweet feeling. (Change is always negative.) Change is inevitable. The universe is made up of changes - transitions of matter from one phase to another, transitions of people from birth to death, from sickness to whatever. You may not like change, but it's there.

Thank you for the good news about continued live shows! It is pleasing to hear also about your party; it does sound very tuned in, humane, honest, medicinal, freewheeling, colorful, and welcoming to everyone who was there to be themselves, and merge with many good present and future aspects with which they could!

Lily:

As tears fell into the saltwater bath today, I thought of Batty crying in the rain. I didn't know you had typed that about Bladerunner above, Ken. In the bath, as I wept, I was listening to myself in the past, laughing. I was listening to Zach, the cat who fell, who wasn't hurt, but often cried just to show he was there, who died about a year after that and was buried by Joy, his owner. That really is her name. You might wonder. She lives in Portland now too. I sometimes wonder if she hears this show ever and feels weird that at points I'm laughing while her cat cries. I feel kind of weird about it myself. She seems to have a new cat now.

After the bath, when I could walk again, after my shift at the coop, I met a person I've seen on the bus a number of times on my way to work at the other coop. I take the bus until next week because someone smashed my bike in half and hurt my body and left me mangled in the road at 1:00 am, after a long night of work at a shelter, at the very end of April. April is the cruelest month.

The person walked up to me and said, "I see you on my bus all of the time and I've wanted to meet you". I said, "Okay". He held out his hand to me and said," My name's Happy, what's yours?". "Lily", I said. "I like your name!", I said. "I like yours too", he said. "Maybe I'll get to talk more with you someday", I said. "I'm sure that will be the case" He said.

My friend is likely giving me a bike next week as I pass through Seattle. I have only ridden a bike once in 4 months, the longest I've ever gone without riding since I first got a bike in childhood. I also miss dancing. I really hope that I am able to dance again. What is life without dancing, without bikes? It is a difficult place to laugh from, but my old self reminded me of how, but first I had to fill the bath with tears.

It is so strange that the person I was said, "There's a cough that won't go away". It did go away, and why couldn't I even temporarily own it? Don't most people say, "I have a cough that won't go away, that lingers"? Even so, the thing that strikes me is that it did go away.

I no longer find the guy calming. I don't know about inflating or deflating egos. I guess they're penetrable, which allows for like their inhale and exhale?

Even with all of this pain, and beauty, and everything, life still feels a little see-through, like it's not totally happening. Or maybe that's just the cumulative trauma talking. I hope that you're well and happy!

Maybe, now I'm the wall. :)
