1. Bobbie Burgers: The title of this painting - "I Am Unable to Distinguish Between You and My Love" - at Bau-Xi.
2. There's a mind game where you run your finger along your inner arm and try to clearly distinguish between what you're feeling with your finger and what you're feeling on your arm.
The trick that becomes more complicated when you bring in another person... how much of you touching another is about you projecting the feeling of yourself being touched? Where does the physical feeling of an embrace begin and end?
3. Harold Brodkey: I wrote this quote in my notebook when reading First Loves...
"we are so entangled with each other that it is impossible to tell whose wish precedes which act or whose applause rewards what performance." - Harold Brodkey, p. 301
