I'm visiting, but I don't know what to say. I am in awe, mouth open. closed. open again. then closed. Then sigh. I love Sept. 17, May 8 and May 9, by the way.

Dear Sweet (Sweet) Tina,
Well, you're really living up to your name with that post, really. Thank you for such lovely thoughts. You really like the self-cruxifiction one? I didn't see that one coming, though I *can* see the digit-alization and counting on the hands one. John

Still in over my head here Mr. Smell Good, but I figure it's better than taking yet another continuing ed class. Thanks.

We need a zwischenraum in our culture. I like the idea of keeping a margin around every day. Ideally, there would be a margin around every meal, plus tea time. Also, a margin at the beginning and end of the work day. And margins around each period of sleep. As well as ample margins around every meeting. I'm leaning toward making the margins larger than the body of text itself ... we need room for more annotation as we get older.

John Ptak

Well said, Jeff. The more the Zwischenraum, the better, though for our present society it would probably only work out if it was prepackaged and sold on TEEVEE. I've also always liked the idea of margins and marginalia (and Patti has written on this in her book and blog, I mean about marginalia, not about ME and marginalia). Poe and Valery are two favorites of mine on the subject.

"We need more room for annotation as we get older."
I LIKE that.

That's not EXACTLY what I said, but I like the way you put it better. I like better the way you put it. I better like the way you put it. Gott im Himmel!

Better the way I put it better? I dunno, I never read any of the comments anyway and am surprised at how close I come, just like the movies and books that I comment on...never seen/read 'em. Just kidding. Mostly. I never actually "see" the movies.
