Writer's block distraction

1. What time did you get up this morning?
9:50. Which is just embarrassing enough that I'm telling myself (and you) that it's a result of still being jet-lagged from the return from Vancouver. Or maybe it's just because I didn't go to bed until after 1.

My friend Sarah has the most beautiful necklace of black pearls and when I saw it a year ago, I was hypnotized. Within the past twelve months, though, it's fair to say my attention (obsession?) has been on diamond (singular).

United 93

It is late. I am working on a screenplay in my place in LA, and of course I am doing what I can do to avoid finishing what I've started -- I am looking things up on wikipedia and watching random things on youtube. Muhammad Ali, that kind of thing. Doing things you do when you can't work and can't sleep. Randomly I google you, Sarah... and turn up this site? It made me happy to hear a few of your thoughts, and eventually I decided I was almost prying. So I decided just to leave this note.

Wherever you are. hello.
