Benedict XVI. the new pope starts his tenure as the head of the church. it was nice to see that it interupted class a bit yesterday when the announcement was made.

i had been clenching my teeth for several weeks. i had to consciously keep myself from doing it; i realized it when i started giving myself headaches. then, i started getting a twitch in my jaw too, which felt really odd. it seems to be gone for the mostpart. maybe it was the nice time i got to spend in the sunshine in the brooklyn botanical gardens and central park this weekend.

friday night i met a friend for dinner at lexington and 60th. it's amazing the difference is neighborhoods within ny. i spend so much time in the lower east side that i forgot there are so many rich old people in the city. we were probably at least 20 years younger than the average age of the patrons. i can't remember the last time i was stared at so much just because of my age. these little trips remind me why i want to stay in lower manhattan.

it is a dark, stormy, windy day the day after pope john paull II dies. an amazing man and spiritual leader. many people will be waiting to see who the successor will be, including me.
