  • When out and about I appreciate making up my own auspicious symbols. Today in China Town I saw a big sign boasting a piece of one of my favorite words. Ka Pow fire, Ka Pow do. Once I wrote a letter of my love to Ka Pow and recorded Mom carefully reading it. That same letter was later sent to a friend of mine who was low in Ka Pow.

    When out and about I appreciate making up my own auspicious symbols. And sudden thoughts! Sudden thought: yesterday when riding the bus, a hitchhiking couch surfing Princeton classics drop out tried to psychoanalyze/woo-and-impress me, his nearest bystander. That's besides the point, but in the process he informed me that only 20 percent of humans daydream constantly.

    If you are in the 20 percent you will find the intricacies of Ka Pow, China, Princeton, Mom, Woo, Woo Woo, fire and 20 in the view from your nearest window.
