My column got moved to Sundays. Will Franken has shows this Saturday. Yesterday was a Hindu holy day celebrating Ganesha. Also yesterday, the Captivate screens in the elevator broke and we saw PC reboot screens instead of news and ads. The sun's been setting earlier. I caused a car accident in late July and I'm still afraid of driving or riding in a car, especially on the 101, where the accident happened. I've had some dreams and nightmares about it. No one got hurt in the accident but I have a bruise from where the airbag went past my hand and it is fading very slowly. I was playing a They Might Be Giants CD when the accident happened and now I have to desensitize myself. My friend Zack just moved away to San Diego. A Salon Premium member, telling me about his trip to Samoa, recited to me the poem carved into Robert Louis Stevenson's gravestone there: This be the verse you grave for me:
Under the wide and starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home front sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
This be the verse you grave for me:
