Bielsko is much better than other places I lived in Poland in terms of . . . well shops and scenery. Other than that it is still Poland. Not much different than anywhere else I have seen. Krakow is unique though.
I keep thinking if I have:
1) a nice clean flat with a somewhat clean roommate
2) internet connection
3) a small library of books
4) a steady schedule with time to think and write
I can do this for another year. I would love to have a permanent address for a year. And have enough money to get some poetry books shipped from the U.S. and the U.K.
God I am starving for some new books of poetry. I can only read Alien Tatters so many times.
