Appearances arrives in stops and starts. Moments of discovery. Then long lulls, frustration, failure.
Listening to J.J. Cale.
Reading Edmund White's new novel (Jack Holmes & His Friend) which is smart, sexy and beautifully written.
Also just started Lyn Hejinian's The Book of a Thousand Eyes, a book which shimmers with intellection and eros. I remember Lyn telling me about this project 20 years ago when she was in Cleveland to read for the Earwitness Public Reading Series which John Byrum, Jessica Grim and I co-curated. Glad to see that it's finally out.
