1973-10-02 Before class

Tuesday, October 2nd, 1973
                          Before class
         I saw a look I never saw before today...
         on the face of a man
         who was pumping the heart of another man
         who probably wasn't going to make it.
         Sadness there, self consciousness,
         the chill of the ultimate reality,
         they all blended on his features
         for the amusement of the gathered crowd
         so tired of T.V.

      ....Denise said that religion wasn't important.
      She wasn't sure if there was a God or not
      nor that it mattered save that she was a bit of 'God'.
      "Living is creating yourself, loving life is learning
      to believe you can cope with all of it."
      "Learning this until you get to the place
      where it doesn't matter, learning this
      until you learn what non-sense is and dig it."
      "The master plan, if such a thing could be so called,
      is that ultimately everything is without sense or reason
      and struggle represents the untogetherness
      of believing it otherwise...."
      I told her it must make sense
      cause it seemed to work for her
      and she laughed at me....
      I felt better, though.

Thursday, October 4th, 1973
            Gathering light I am the lens...
            sometimes I'm watching it
            sometimes I'm lost in it
            but few times, I am it.
