This is a log book entry Star date—-
Well anyhow, this is truly Winter in Spring and we went to
Wolfe’s on 452 to buy way too many vegetable plants
assuming that the weather will change, won’t it.
Thanks to Rich giving me the book
The Curse of Doestoevsky ( on my birthday) which
I just finished, I returned to reading
Russian Literature which, as it turns out
enables me to write, one aspect
I want to buy some copies of this
to send to others who read Russian Lit
so I can get other opinions.
Again, I thank Rich greatly

Will probably go to the
Swarthmore College Bookstore

(Though I have B&N Coupons in my email constantly.
Life is not always about cheaper.)
Having decided that the missing plane 370
is either in the vein of The Philadelphia Experiment
or some other conspiracy theory,
I listen to all official explanations
with a questioning sense.
It probably did crash, I’m 90% sure
but shouldn’t we have some real proof?
I know the truth is out there, I think.
Will return to some drafted Poems anon
but I just needed to ventilate with a
Low is 20 tonight and then
we are told
it gets slowly better.
