Good and bad

Good…I’m still trying to process how today’s game felt. I’ve been closer to the field at AT&T—we were just five rows behind first base for Petit’s almost perfect game. But even though we were more like twenty rows right behind the visitor’s on deck circle tonight, there was the same kind of intimacy I feel at a Rivercats game. It still had a very big league game feel though. Hard to describe, but very enjoyable. Also the view of the guys while they were on deck…damn.

Bad…I’ve been awake for 36 hours and I so fucking tired, but one of my fucking body’s fucking health issues is keeping me from sleeping and so I feel like total crap and I’m depressed and whiny and….


So that was totally worth all the bother! It was a great game and not only were we in a section with Giants fans, we were in a section with female Giants fans. I like Wrigley a lot; it’s very different than the other major league parks I’ve been to.

And now…time to collapse in a heap.


You know why I love AUs? Because the whole point of them is that everything is changed, and yet these two people are still going to meet and fall in love- that they’re so set in stone and so meant to be that you can change literally everything in a hundred universes and they’ll fall in love over and over again. 


We aren’t at the resumed game because I haven’t slept since…I dunno…I woke up around noon on Wednesday and maybe slept for a half hour on the plane. My head’s kind of hating me right now. So we’re gonna rest and wait out this game and see what the weather’s like later. We can get to Wrigley in about 20 minutes by cab so that’s not an issue.


May I point out that water is not supposed to come out of the sky in August.

So here we are….

In Chicago. With tickets that would enable us to go to both the resumed game and tonight’s scheduled game.

It is, of course, pouring.


 Albert Yonathan Setyawan:Geometry and Symbolism

Symbolic emblems of hummingbirds, moths and angels; or sometimes plants or architectural structures. Ceramic objets of the same shape are arranged in repeated iterations, which become geometrical forms when viewed as a whole. Yonathan’s artwork may not be seen as offering one sole assertion or design. Rather, like the world encircling us, what it depicts precisely depends on the significance with which it encaptures each individual viewer.

Within the world of nature of which our human society is an inextricable part, over and again are re-iterating instances, encounters, crystallizations and chance combinations. Recalling the Buddhist mandalas which depict the cosmos, 

Yonathan’s works possess universal quality of the perpetually changing state of natural life. 

The exhibition’s title, ‘Enshrined’, both denotes the condition of being made sacred and implies a respect for nature’s ever-spinning wheel of mystery. Mankind is fundamentally a part of nature: from this there can be no turning away. Living in a society confronted by so many various problems, perhaps there is something we may learn from Yonathan’s work: we of today’s modern world.

The exhibition will consist of six ceramic-produced pieces as well as drawings. We warmly invite you to view the first solo show of Albert Yonathan, its artworks created under the inspiration of his Japanese life.

Hope they saved some….

Here’s hoping the Giants have some runs left for tomorrow. Apparently, we will be able to see the rest of the suspended game if we want to. And then…Bum!

Bum actually said ‘Congratulations, you hit your first home run in a Mickey Mouse park.’
