been thinking a lot about VISIONARIES these days, maybe because i am so totally bound to the things directly in front of or behind me. i barely notice trends, patterns in the weather, the way the world is headed. this is something i wish i could fix. rhan, for one, has remarkable forward-thinking skills. glenn gould had them when he resolved to stop performing concerts. andy warhol had them in spades. there are people whose entire energies are devoted to shaping the world ahead, or people for whom this inclination is totally natural. goddamn.

meanwhile, it's been a good week. we saw an all-female improv troupe last night, which led to an ardent discussion (argument) about the merits of improv comedy in general. rhan is decidedly con. i'm still up in the air.
