J’s Diary Entry
Thursday, 13 July, 1995
I caught the Broadmeadows train home tonight and alighted at Moonee Ponds. I went to the Library and borrowed a book on Japan. Chloe was there a few weeks ago (Japan, not the library), so I figured I’d read up on it so as to have something to talk about in case of an emergency. I shocked myself; the book was really interesting. It’s basically a picture-book, very dilettante-ish, but I guess that’s what I was after. I read it from 7:30 to 9:30 without even realizing. It’s re-kindled in me a desire to study, to veer from all the fiction I’ve been reading the last few years and dig into some study. I feel like accumulating knowledge again. Perhaps this is the dawn of J’s Intellectual Renaissance.
