Off to Seattle & Kevin Smith...and then the Pamir?

So, off to seattle tomorrow to see Kevin Smith at Benaroya. Can't wait! They lost my tickets in the mail, but was actually able to fix through ticketmaster so now they'll be at will call.

Much needed time away from Portland, as funny as that is, given that I just got back from San Diego. Maybe it's much needed time away from my day job? I'm feeling pretty sucked into the political hell of office life, a place for which I am very poorly suited...partly because I just can't bring myself to care, so I consistently get myself in trouble with the things that come out of my mouth, and partly because I care too much, in that I think it's a horrible way to spend your life as a human being, and it saddens me to see how much people often do invest in activities that matter so little in the greater scheme of things. 

I spent a lot of time reading more meditative things while in San Diego, and it made me long to return to India, and the Himalayas especially. I am thinking that as soon as I get rid of the remainder of the debt, it will be a one way ticket back there, for at least the duration of a six month visa. Some time spent with my Tibetan friends near the light of the Dalai Lama and where I can hike and write and drink good coffee would not be amiss. Money certainly is not the point of being alive.

Hopefully, living there on a few grand for so many months, I can eke out enough for a plane ticket back when that precious green (or my tolerance for a lack of clean water and foot pedal toilets) runs out...  :)

I have been dreaming of India lately though. Not sure what that means, other than the writing leaking back into my existence again. What I'd really like to see is the Pamir, as that's been figuring into the writing the most, but that would be a bit of a jaunt...but very lovely (see pic above).
