Well, my back is still fucked up but slightly better. I’ve put everything away that can be put away. I need shelves for the studio portion of the apartment. HASA says they are giving me a table and chairs. As soon as they do I’ll start a series of gouaches that I’ve been thinking about for a while. I feel like I’m finally, truly, in possession of the apartment. The last detail will be meeting my new probation officer as Brooklyn is in the Eastern District and Manhattan is in the Southern District. Anyway, I have a bunch of great kitchen stuff (thank, people!!!) and a great bed (thanks, people!!!) and I love my home. More to the point, I love living alone. I’m having major writer’s block but that will pass. I’m reading 1Q84 and you should be, too.
