do you document your obsessions obsessively? (what’s a blog for after all? — please note i will have more questions today than answers–in fact this may be the only statement you read here today, although it’s too early to tell if that is the truth or not as i’ve just begun.)
it can’t possibly be harmful, can it?
especially when each view is so different and yet so reassuringly familiar. obsessions are all about control, aren’t they? an obsession is a way of controlling what you know you can’t–putting some order to your world — like alphabetizing the pantry shelves, say–or color-coding the clothes in your closet (guilty as charged!)
[if you’re keeping count that’s two statements to one question in this paragraph.]
and yet with the palms, i like to think that they may enjoy the notoriety (as slim as it is.) every time i look at them i see them in a different light–which of course is a true statement as each moment of our lives is unique, is it not? (i am reaching with this whole question vs. statement thing, aren’t i? and besides i’ve lost count, it not being an obsession of mine, say, as the palms are.)
one minor irritation: do you not find it annoying when people end every statement as if it were a question? there are even those who write that way? (see, like that.)
