Interstate 96, Michigan

Michigan. My home state. Sunny skies, a high near seventy, and there were no kidnappings or explosions in the wake of last night’s election. We’re doing great.

Tonight C. and I are driving to a museum to discuss a possible thing. We spent a fair chunk of the ride debating whether laws were necessary to prevent us from killing each other and bouncing checks or if they merely reflected the fundamentally good inclination of human nature. I was the optimist in this debate, which surprised us both. But I enjoy imagining we need a complex system of federal and state statutes to prevent C. from causing trouble.

I love driving at night. It feels like a video game.

Being back in Michigan has me feeling old and sentimental, so here’s a nostalgic track from Drexciya‘s woozy Kraftwerk tribute that’s nearly thirty years old.

Sunset: 5:52pm. A waning crescent moon on Halloween with a high of 64 degrees. I think I’ve had enough input. Enough inspiration.

Heavy rain beats against the windows and it’s the longest night of the year, one of my favorite moments.

Ohio. Sunset: 9:05pm. The longest day of the year, and, thank god, soon we'll be making more night. This journal will become a halfway house for homeless paragraphs from the stories I'm writing.
