On anonymous questions/comments
Don’t we all know that the moment a person sheds the constraints of identity/accountability, they also tend to shed the constraints of normal behavior. Anonymity encourages incivility. If you don’t like stupid anonymous messages, don’t allow them.
I think it can be tremendously refreshing if a creator of literature has something on his mind other than the history of literature so far. Literature should not disappear up its own asshole, so to speak.
I was at the Filling Station getting tea this morning and a song came on. I don’t know what the song was or who it was by, but when I heard it, I wanted to dance. I wanted to dance as hard as I could for as long as the song played and then I wanted to disappear completely. I didn’t want to die, I wasn’t unhappy, I just wanted to disappear. Three minutes of joy and then poof, back to stardust.
