This week's Vortex.
Hmmm, OK so I've been thinking about other things recently. Which is why I'm not thinking about day to day Sexyloops
stuff. In short I've met a woman, which sucks of course. How the fuck am I meant to go fishing now? So basically I'm
buggered and to make matters worse it's the sister of good friend who's the boyfriend of another good friend and in
fact I know all the fucking family and have fished with some and smoked seal's fur with others. Fuck man, sometimes
I think I am the family. So it's really fucking complicated and I've had to think about it quite a bit.
So yeah, had a few other things on my mind. So what do you do? I've been travelling - like homeless travelling - for
the last 12 or 13 years and I like it. I like the fact that I can do whatever I want... whenever I want... however I
want... well you get the picture; I fish pretty much as often as I like. Does she fish? Well no, but she's learning
- and always wanted to - but not enough to give everything up and spend her life chasing fish with me, assuming that
I'd want that; I mean I can't know until I've tried it.
Anyway I know one thing; I could never live in city, not for anything - no amount of love or money. I need a view
and *space*. Of course I knew that before, but it was interesting to have it reconfirmed. It doesn't have to be
travel - I don't think - but it has to be a no-people-at-all view. Living in a house share - which I did, on and off,
for a couple of weeks - sapped all my creativity. It's nice to be back in my own environment again. Which I am by
the way, having run off, to Hamner; I'm parked on a remote peak, doing my own thing. Yeah, I know, but I always
find myself up mountains - as I guess does Carlos, who flycasts up them.
So what do I do?
I don't know. She's a pretty cool chick and she'd be fun to hang out with for Christmas but it means singing
Christmas carols the night before, with all the family, together, in one room, and I just don't know if I
could bring myself to do that.
So what have you been up to?
