After These Messages We’ll Be Right Back

“I don’t seem to get done with any text, but it doesn’t matter, I’m not interested in getting done with anything.  I am only interested in talking along and wandering around as much as I want to, regardless of results to the future reader.  By consequence, here we have diary and history combined; because as soon as I wander from the present text – the thought of today – that digression takes me far and wide over an uncharted sea of recollection, and the result of that is history.
