Old friend Alex asked me a while ago how I can do that "nothing happening" thing I do all the time. I guess it is a thing I do. It's a special quality that I have partly through karate and it's way of seeing things. Karate is really good at not speaking instead of saying something, and that changes things, somehow.
It's because pieces need to come back together before I might have things happening, like with a group of friends: and I think particularly of how much my Oregon friends would like my friends from Berkeley, if they were to meet. I can guarantee there'd be some frisky dancing, some Hendrix, a bit of Pink Floyd, and delve into the deep meaning ....I mean, get high and play some music.
I mean, I have things happening...karate, music, but ....I see why I had to get out of the Berkeley scene..... no place, etc.
But given that I might have been talked about a bit, so what? What good is that doing me now?
On the other hand, things aren't so bad. You could say that karate and family support got me to where I am today
