Like Chewing Paper
This is what I face today, of course. This is what haunts my waking and sleeping vision. Forms, memos. . . paperwork. Some of you have escaped this and have transcended into actual experiences. I hate and envy you. For those of you who work in the virtual world--ha! I am, at least, one step closer.

I spent a bunch of money buying boxes of the now defunct Fuji 100-C instant film. I may spend that again. It is gone from the stores. When I faced that yesterday, I panicked. There is still some online. I need a benefactor.
