September 4, 2021:

Plotinus, Jung, medievals, hermeneutics. Ricoeur, Lacan, Levi-Strauss. Dobro, Oreos, plants needing water. The Good Place, streaming on a bigass TV.

Two-hundred-foot-pines. Unhealthy smoke from the north, bearing gifts of asbestos and fiberglass and burnt polymer insulation.

Darkness. It's never light here. The walls are brown and slanted, the deck is off-limits due to poison air.

Heat, sweat, isolation, books books books books. Stoics, Epicurus, Galileo, Husserl, Musil. I'm a grad student without a college.
