there have been 27 revolutions

and rebellions in the most recent ten years. and probably more. i feel like memorizing something. a list if things. like all of the revolutions. or all of the parts of my bicycle. i also feel like reading about old things. i feel like reading civil war literature. or going to a civil war reenactment. there is a place called missouri town that i went to once. you get to live in the 19th century if you go there.

i've been reading a lot of baudelaire this week. he says this: "modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable."

i have to use a picture of me for an author photo. here is one that has the sky in it so it is my favorite. i hope i get to use it.

and here is an even better one, but i'm an animal in it, so i probably can't use it
