TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
Time for a breather

again you are facing a titan's task alone but a door closes/another opens may be
in the works.
am concerned for the relentless pressure on your health matters.
We would rather have much less of you and savor what we get when we get
it---who cares if it's late?
reflections as always are of great value. Thanks for being and offering so much
spoke of the unease you felt in the tunnels, bridges and stations.
I personally never set foot in Manhattan again after the '93 attack on
went to Long Island via Staten Island. So
I'm paranoid, but I have since contented myself with New York newspapers and
reports from my relatives about all the good stuff I've been missing. No
nephew is a NY police Captain and was here last Thursday.
Believe me that our media has sanitized the coverage.
love and need you. I don't believe that you take care of yourself for you so
please do so for your family and friends.

is a little true story I wrote up for Luke's site. He seemed to enjoy it.
of my affluent Jewish friends have servants, usually hispanics. Many of them
have live-in Central American maids who cook and clean and look after the kids.

aunt's stall at the Fiesta Food mart. It was working out well. One night we both
had some wine and I boinked her. I thought, wow! this is great. For only sixty
bucks I get my house cleaned and my ashes hauled. The next Friday she wanted
eighty bucks but I still figured it was quite a bargain. After I upped her
salary she only wanted to drink wine, eat pizza and fuck, no cleaning. It wasn't
a good deal anymore. Fortunately it wasn't long before she met some guy on the
Internet and flew off to Detroit to live with him. They got hitched.

do what they are paid to do. Don't drink wine with them.
this is great
