November the last

So I spent most of November writing or trying to write or talking about writing or occasionally sleeping.

I did not write a novel like some do but I did generate more content for my absurdly lengthy memoir which already needs to be in three volumes.

Should never have read Proust for my exams.

Um, I'm reading Sunday at the Small Press Distribution Open House in Berkeley, sometime around 2pm or shortly thereafter. It's not the release party, which is looking less and less likely anyway, but it is something. I am hoping to campaign for a few other somethings when I can get my head sufficiently clear to be able to do the things that everyone else seems to do instinctively.

But this one is this Sunday. I do not know where SPD actually is but I plan on looking at a map and deciding whether to try to catch a bus or walk and take lots of dry clothes to change into when I get there.

That's all I really have to say right now. I am stressing about completely unrelated things so maybe another post for that.

Come listen to me read! And watch as the words actually leave my mouth and pummel your eardrums!

I wish you could be here too! You do know that I have a couple of blog post videos of me reading, don't you? I can find the specific links if you want, but if you peruse my blog, you'll find them. :)

oh, maybe i didn't know that! (hard to tell anymore, the way my memory leaks. *g*) i'll go search them out.

...just listened to "Cryptorchid" and recognized it, so maybe i did know. i think i need some gingko biloba. ;)

Well you know with the internet nobody needs to remember anything anymore. It's all out here somewhere!

One does have to remember how to find things though. I suppose that might be challenging. :)

my google-fu is strong! for now. :D

i enjoyed hearing you read it, btw, which i should've said in my previous comment.

I believe it is the Magritte icon. I had to stare closely at it before I was sure that it was what it looked like but it is so small I cannot be absolutely certain. But it has the bowler hat and everything so it must be.

I forget exactly where to go but they offer custom icons for like $1.99 or something. Small gifts to the self.

ok, i looked over the userheads and saw nothing that suited me, but yours is called Son of Man. googling for "magritte son of man" turned up exactly that painting. i had no idea it was called that!

I guess that settles it then! I did not know the name of the painting either. "Son of Man" does not ring any artistic bells, either. Guess I was sleeping when we studied Magritte. :)

Thanks for posting this. It reminded me to order your book--which I finally just did!

You're welcome! And thank you! I will get it in the mail tomorrow morning--I just woke up this afternoon and have to pretty myself for a reading (not mine) over in Berkeley in a couple of hours.

Thanks! I didn't know you filled the Amazon orders.

Ha! I replied before checking to see if you ordered it from my blog. But no, I don't fill the amazon orders. I don't know who does although they originate at Small Press Distribution in Berkeley at some point.

I wonder if you will be the first to have ordered from Amazon.

Me too! When I am a rich and famous poet travelling the world, I will make sure and stop nearby. :)
