« Music for fall - Rachel Barenblat | Main | Sitting in the darkness waiting for something to burst - Rachel Barenblat »

October 20, 2010


One of your best, Jen Mike. Hang in there.

I needed this today. Thank you. Dan B.

Lovely sentiments. I forgot how long (!) is "I measure every grief.." but I'll never forget how I felt I was being hugged when I read it for the first time. And, more than that, a kind of permission to give up censoring myself for voyeurism when I, too, felt tempted to contrasted others coping skills with mine instead of focusing on the underlying needs. Now that I think about it, I still feel hugged when my 'narrow probing eyes' inspect a blog for its truth.
Nice to meet you Jennifer. I'll be back.

I left it
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
