Got a call from J last night around eight o’clock. He was calling from the San Joaquin Community Hospital emergency room. He suddenly had been unable to walk without extreme pain. They did an ultrasound examination of his legs, but he had not heard the results. Given that he is homeless, where he will be today is unknown.
I have updated my "Bleak Philosophy" to expand and revise what was previously available at this link. It is still very much a work-in-progress.
Lots of dream stories, a bit of philosophy, chasing around Bakersfield to return a purse, trike adventures, movie reviews, and so on.
A most pleasant surprise: Black Book, a WWII thriller with a stunning, charming, gutsy performance by 30-year-old beauty Carice van Houten. Very tense at times, with lots of twists and turns, lots of death, lots of bare bosoms. Good recreation of ’44 Holland. Happily, no concentration camps. Directed by Paul Voerhoeven of Starship Troopers … fame? I picked up this DVD somewhere cheap, perhaps the last library book sale. This one really got under my skin, well, she did, especially.
I've been off the Internet for a month due to software problems. This is the first of two long posts to get me caught up to the present in my Diary posts.
