Placencia, Belize [8 April 1994]

Further transcription of my Belize travel journal

A day of decompression & reminiscences of high school days. A lot of it was spent on the beach looking across the ble-green waters to the cayes moored like fronded ships in the distance. Danny & I talked a lot about the people we remember, the things we did back in Durham. Belize, unlike Alaska, is spacious--the sky is a wide blue bowel w/massive fortress-like clouds scudding through it. This spaciousness is amenable to expansive thoughts & remembrances--& I'm beginning to think that I might need to spend more time out & w/the water w/a mint-green bow streak behind me. Maybe I should do the Mariner's school.

Part of what I want in a xxxx is a window into another world of preception, & since I haven't found that (FK's control xxxx xxxxxxx seems now so insular & self-conscious), I'll take the world & ocean & sky as that--maybe I should have started with that.

I'm getting a better sense of the town & its cluttered ramshackle ways--there's little need for propriety, its utterly casual, loping along the boys I see, a little buzzed, taking what it can get. So far I'm loving it.

Strangely, K's being a bit linear & I'm being a bit loopier (a reversal of what I expected, maybe I'm mellowing).

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

Why not have an old-fashioned Christmas for your family this year? Just
picture the scene in your living room on Christmas morning as your children
open their old-fashioned presents.

Your 11-year-old son: "What the heck is this?"

You: "A spinning top! You spin it around, and then eventually it falls
down. What fun! Ha, ha!"

Son: "Is this a joke? Jason Thompson's parents got him a computer with
two disk drives and 128 kilobytes of random-access memory, and I get this
cretin TOP?"

Your 8-year-old daughter: "You think that's bad? Look at this."

You: "It's figgy pudding! What a treat!"

Daughter: "It looks like goat barf."

love, n.:
When you don't want someone too close--because you're very sensitive
to pleasure.
buy lipitor cheap lipitorFellow programmer, greetings! You are reading a letter which will bring
you luck and good fortune. Just mail (or UUCP) ten copies of this letter
to ten of your friends. Before you make the copies, send a chip or
other bit of hardware, and 100 lines of 'C' code to the first person on the
list given at the bottom of this letter. Then delete their name and add
yours to the bottom of the list.

Don't break the chain! Make the copy within 48 hours. Gerald R. of San
Diego failed to send out his ten copies and woke the next morning to find
his job description changed to "COBOL programmer." Fred A. of New York sent
out his ten copies and within a month had enough hardware and software to
build a Cray dedicated to playing Zork. Martha H. of Chicago laughed at
this letter and broke the chain. Shortly thereafter, a fire broke out in
her terminal and she now spends her days writing documentation for IBM PC's.

Don't break the chain! Send out your ten copies today!
For example, if \thinmskip = 3mu, this makes \thickmskip = 6mu. But if
you also want to use \skip12 for horizontal glue, whether in math mode or
not, the amount of skipping will be in points (e.g., 6pt). The rule is
that glue in math mode varies with the size only when it is an \mskip;
when moving between an mskip and ordinary skip, the conversion factor
1mu=1pt is always used. The meaning of '\mskip\skip12' and
'\baselineskip=\the\thickmskip' should be clear.
