Back to the huge shuffle, the kind that’s only possible with long stretches of time in which to sort out the pieces. Pulling the story apart, seeing where the focus lies, depending on the various groupings of characters. This throws chronologies out of sync obviously, but that’s neither here nor there for the time being.
There’s a program of short animated films for children this afternoon at the cinema. With most of the people I know out of town for the spring break, the sound of kids at a movie show may be my only form of live human interaction today. I’d best take advantage. Long, long stretches of alone time are OK although god knows I wouldn’t mind owning a car, hopping into it and leaving this town for a day or two.
