A Mumbled Conspiracy Feels Wholesome These Days

All the President’s Men is the forensic encapsulation of a portending pause of presidential prudence and to my mind one of the best pre-CGI shot scenes of the drawout in the Library of Congress as well as some of the better reality driven reasons why we “vote”. May I recommend Clark Strand’s book ” Waking Up to the Dark” as a way of understanding why you awake at a certain time of night. As to ghosts..they inhabit what we can’t own and we can’t own what was taken from them. There have been 100 billion persons on this planet before us…am guessing some are tired of what they see and are showing up to say so. Your writing suggests you have not only seen them but you spend time with them.

I was seeing a therapist once and she asked me about my preference for blues and writing like yours. It was pretty easy to answer that I felt that those places are where life is truly lived. Life is not that hard….but without an honest view it becomes something else and beyond our willingness to comprehend and endure. What you and C do is bring the surreal real and do one thing really well which is to “ask”. the magic real?

I have enjoyed your writings and work for many years…met you in a book tour in Minneapolis in maybe 2011. Continued best wishes and many thanks for your continued presence and willingness to produce and promote what is an important voice. Be well.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
