(520): But I don't consider them one night stands. They're auditions.

2. WHAT I AM NOT

My brother and I used to play a game. I'd point to a chair. "THIS IS NOT A CHAIR," I'd say. Bird would point to the table. "THIS IS NOT A TABLE." "THIS IS NOT A WALL," I'd say. "THAT IS NOT A CEILING." We'd go on like that. "IT IS NOT RAINING OUT." "MY SHOE IS NOT UNTIED!" Bird would yell. I'd point to my elbow. "THIS IS NOT A SCRAPE." Bird would lift his knee. "THIS IS ALSO NOT A SCRAPE!" "THAT IS NOT A KETTLE!" "NOT A CUP!" "NOT A SPOON!" "NOT DIRTY DISHES!" We denied whole rooms, years, weathers. Once, at the peak of our shouting, Bird took a deep breath. At the top of his lungs, he shrieked: "I! HAVE NOT! BEEN! UNHAPPY! MY WHOLE! LIFE!" "But you're only seven," I said.

"I finally understood, 'oh my god, that's the only way that I can write this, if I start seeing him as beautiful. That he's beautiful after all that happened. He's still beautiful, even after no matter what he does.' Now that can say a lot about me, or that can say a lot about him.” - Tori Amos

This has been a really fucked up week.

There will be other lives.

There will be other lives for nervous boys with sweaty palms, for bittersweet fumblings in the backseats of cars, for caps and gowns in royal blue and crimson, for mothers clasping pretty pearl necklaces around daughters' unlined necks, for your full name read aloud in an auditorium, for brand-new suitcases transporting you to strange new people in strange new lands.

And there will be other lives for unpaid debts, for one-night stands, for Prague and Paris, for painful shoes with pointy toes, for indecision and revisions.

And there will be other lives for fathers walking daughters down aisles.

And there will be other lives for sweet babies with skin like milk.

And there will be other lives for a man you don't recognize, for a face in a mirror that is no longer yours, for the funerals of intimates, for shrinking, for teeth that fall out, for hair on your chin, for forgetting everything. Everything.

Oh, there are so many lives. How we wish we could live them concurrently instead of one by one by one. We could select the best pieces of each, stringing them together like a strand of pearls.

But that's not how it works.

A human's life is a beautiful mess.

Adam had a little monologue before he went into the acoustic version of Miami. I got it on video, but I wanted to post the transcript here:

"We were playing on tour with Live, like, seven years ago. Six years ago, five years ago... We were down south and I hadn't seen my girlfriend in about a month. She'd been out of the country for awhile and she was flying in to meet me. I went to the airport to pick her up, it was back when you could still go into the airport and go to the gate and wait for someone... It was different then. The plane was late, it was supposed to come in right around 5:30. So, I went to the airport and I sat at the gate and watched the tarmac of the planes landing. And as the sun was going down, I realized how much I missed her. And I also realized I was gonna fuck this up pretty soon. It was a weird feeling because I knew that I loved her, but I knew that I just didn't have it together, you know. It's weird to feel both those things at once, because you know it's going to be heaven when she gets here, but at the same time you're going to do something to make her leave..."

As Adam came on stage, he said that his girlfriend had broken up with him earlier in the day. :(
