-April 30:



Yes, “profoundly” for me (re: April 23 below),
which is always individually relative. I’d never share something presumptuously, relative to others (i.e., not posturing).

Yet, presumption is inevitable, isn’t it: because
an actual reader is unmet by the writer.

So, two senses of the other are implicit: you, an inevitable stranger (the expansively unknowable life) and my sense of you (narrowly implied by
me writing: “To whom this may interest...”

But you don’t want an excursion on rhetorical features of authorship. Me neither.

It’s the old story: so much generative enchant-ment, I don’t want to give time to report yet.

Yet: All the better for when beginning here again happens.

I’m close. But I’m confounded by unanticipated fascinations, by accidents of daily life (no harms, just tedium), and by novel flows of notes that often enough amaze me—fascinating accidents that “inhibit” the organization of what I’ve done, as if
a painter of a landscape is undone by sudden emergences that reshape it all, while drawing one into that emergence as such, away from how the landscape has been changed, which must be appreciated too, before painting can go on.

April 23
I don’t want to do an update now. I’m happily immersed in my explorations. It’s profoundly entertaining.


Next update: May 7
