Friday Aug 22

An entire evening talking
to friends on the phone.

And an appointment
with an unknown [to me] girl
for Monday Tues.


Matt's Notes

Papa installed a private telephone in his apartment back in June in order to, as he put it, "in my loneliness talk to my friends direct from my house." I wonder if he had the same feelings for this technology as he did for his radio, a combination of fascination with its capabilities and a sense, especially on nights when it was his sole diversion, that it was a cold substitute for real companionship.
