2nd October 2005

10:14pm: Xin Jing was enough like going home to make me more happy than homesick for a while. xu hai feng kept saying "fish!" and "Xin Jing!" in the quiet moments and it felt a little bit like it was me saying it. so many smells: jasmine, orange trees, night soil, river, clouds of black smoke, spices, dogs, incense. if i understand my friends correctly, the chinese word for cilantro means "delicious". you got that right.

today someone mistook me for a French person. i'm positive that this is because she saw me when i discovered and read the Rainer Maria Rilke poem at the end of Jimmy Liao's Sound of Colors, and in that moment i literally transformed into Amelie Poulain.

i would be very happy if people sent me pictures and letters:

30th July 2005

10:13pm: Grizzly bears sleep (and dream) six months out of every year. Whenever I am reminded of this, I have an intense desire to know what its like to have that kind of life.

A few nights ago, I dreamed about Charlotte. Those are the best dreams. They make me feel like someone dead is talking to me through my sleep. I don't know why.
