russians

i'm spending lots of time with russians. two in particular, but there are others on the outskirts. they have a certain something about them that is uniquely russian, something i am very fond of. these two are classic people with fashion tastes quite un-american, compelling, intriguing, my favorite. literature. cold nights and accepted agony. i'm sure they will laugh at this.
i made an instructional video with lea, the mountain jew, for about.com. it will make her some money and i had fun doing it. we rode bikes and hiked one of the many gorges in ithaca and she told me what she knew of geography and glacial dance moves. i could go on talking to her for hours.
i am wasting time waiting for inspiration. the block exists, i exist behind it. i don't really know what i'm doing. i feel stifled by needing to be kind.

Digging the new pic. And yes, Russians, of all stripes have something about them.

Awwwwwwww. I do not laugh at this. I'm just sad that we didn't get to say goodbye, but that just means it ain't over yet baby.

I can't wait till the day I get to send you the url to your video, sweet.

Let Freedom Van ring, and have fulfilling travels.
