« But who knows where or when? | Main | "Casting Call" [by Patricia Carlin] »

February 19, 2010


Bravo, Jerry! I could easily and viscerally imagine every bit of it; I could even feel the Slavic bite of her homeland's desperate temperatures. As you know, we have a lot in common.

jeezus, jerry. are you on sabbatical or something? how can anyone write like this while they are teaching? i feel like a slacker. this is really gorgeous, wrenching, all that. i assume this will be in your memoir. it must be.

why thank you, amy. i'm not on sabbatical or something. my clone is just cranking away while i watch the incredible mr. limpet.

thanks so much, paintless. every comment means so much to me, given this is my first venture into the blogosphere.

Phukes! I could imagine every bit of it...

You would profit from reading Emerson's essays -- and taking "Self-Reliance" to heart.

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
