Well, I've got a damn good first paragraph. Er, three sentences. After school, talking to Mrs. Helton, I realized that I've seen A Passage to India--especially the parts I'm writing about--in mental pictures, and now it's really difficult to translate them into words. She said she understood Ulysses (I think this is what she said) only in musical terms, as it's a very musical book. Well, it was a nice moment, even if it doesn't help me with my paper.


It's amazing how nice moments can be really prolonged sustenance.


I'm jittery about going to salsa dancing lessons. It doesn't help that Diane and Kristen are nervous, too. We're going to ride together. Safety in numbers.


I am going to finish this. I am not going to stay up until all hours scraping together weak connections between vague metaphors. I am not going to close my eyes or look at my new Newsweek or Entertainment Weekly until I am completely done with my paper, with studying for French, with my stupid French assignment, with finding NHS tutors, with struggling through potentially awkward salsa techniques in a room full of mirrors.
