June 20, 1967 - Tues
really getting easy to loose track of the days. Without school
I have to keep reminding myself just what day it is.
We finally got a temporary
schedule worked out at the vet hospital. Right now I work from 6 to
8:30 and from 3 to 5:30. I don't like getting up everyday at 5:30 but
the time in between is good and I guess I'll get used to it. I like
working just 2 &1/2 hours at a time because I don't find I run out of work
so often. I hate it when I can't find anything to do but I must look
busy. It gets embarrassing.
Lately everything seems out
of proportion. When I get home after my first shift, I usually go back
to bed then get up at 11. I've been spending that mid day time listening to
the "Sgt. Peppers" album over and over. Boy I like that album.
They really put some thought into it and it isn't just a bunch of gooey love
After my afternoon work and
after dinner I do nothing but walk the beach or play the guitar. I
haven't seen any of my friends and I'm really enjoying being alone. I can
think better when I'm by myself. It's amazing but with all this free time I
don't get bored. After a few weeks I suppose I'll get sick of it.
Now that I get up so early I
find it very interesting comparing the sunset to the sunrise. Around
here at sunset everything is very quiet and still. Not a thing stirs,
not even the wind. It almost seems as if the earth is exhausted and
ready for sleep.
When I get up, the sun is
just beginning to come up The birds are singing, there is usually a little
breeze and there seems to be something in the air that is moving or
vibrating. It's hard to describe.
It's interesting driving to
work in the morning. Hardly anyone is up but there are always a few
cars on the road and maybe 5 or 6 pedestrians. I wonder where they're
