belief and technique

today we went to almora. i had a headache. we ate roasted peanuts and mysterious and delicious local sweets that vipin bought us. we talked to him about food from home, like fried chicken, barbecue sauce, cheesecake and cobbler. we went to a small zoo and vipin told us about how the leopard behind the cage had killed several people. sometimes i can't tell if he's joking but i think he was maybe serious this time. dogs go missing all the time in these areas from the leopards. this one kept licking his paws and trying to get as close as possible to the sunshine to take a nap.

i think all the time about jack kerouac's "belief and technique for modern prose". i read it in high school and the words sometimes out of no where, like a song, start running through my head. numbers 19 and 20 are my favorites right now. they've been repeating in there for days now.

"19. Accept loss forever 
20. Believe in the holy contour of life"
