It's official . . . today I cancelled my hotel reservations in Raleigh. I'm not going to Hopscotch (anybody want a VIP wristband?). Not going to Bumbershoot this year, either, breaking a four-year streak. And I quit MFNW (RIP) a year ago.
Everything's impermanent and nothing lasts forever. The physical pleasure which a certain woman gave you at a certain moment, the exquisite dish which you ate on a certain day - you will never meet either again. Nothing is repeated, and everything is unparalleled.
