so i'm getting tired of this planning thing

...talked to my professor about circles and lines the other day...for a while now, and especially lately, i've become more convinced that the way to stop the line is to spontaneously begin a new trajectory that does not map nicely onto any sort of patterned predictability. like when you're driving and your cell phone service cuts out because you enter, briefly, a space that is not perfectly networked --- you've really stumbled onto/into something; it changes your pace. don't be angry your call dropped. that's an opportunity if you want it. what will you do with it? i could talk on and on about frames of context, shifted footing, everyday performances and the argument of performance versus behavior, but i'm late.

disconnection is a beautiful thing. yes, i said beautiful.

you said "you've really stumbled onto/into something; it changes your pace. don't be angry your call dropped. that's an opportunity if you want it. what will you do with it?"

this is the brightest thing i've heard from a girl in months.
thank you.

when writing this, i was thinking about andy warhol and his films -- he loved the stuff people usually cut from shooting sessions, the fuzzy, less aware moments. i like these the best too -- for me, they are moments that reflect the opportunity that lies in all other moments to simply exist without acting out of a means to an end...

lets slow consumption so we can stop producing and reproducing cycles and patterns we aren't even sure we enjoy -- pleasure me with passive breathing and potential energy --
