Yesterday looking out my window in the morning I saw a clutch of birds wheeling in the wind. They flipped like a snapping, whipping flag that's black on one side and white on the other, all together, about twenty birds or so, above a church.

I saw a movie last night called Rize, by David LaChapelle (not Dave Chapelle), who usually takes fashion photos for mags like Rolling Stone. It's about the ghettos in LA, and this new style of dance called "krumping." It was really poignant and beautiful and cool - the dancing is amazing - and I was surprised that LaChapelle displayed such empathy and a deft touch.

I haven't posted here in awhile because I don't want to write things on this blog if they're totally me-centered & pedestrian.

I'm Paulo's friend (you can ask him; I'm real), and I read your blog, and I write a lot of me-centered things on my own blog, though I don't think it's too pedestrian. I guess I'm feeling insecure about my narcissistic hobby ;)

I like the way you write. You should post more.
