Labyrinths and unalomes
Thank you for the recommendations. I subscribed to quite a few of them, including John's Ordinary Mastery. I have loved reading since I was a child. I went on to be an editor and spent 8 hours a day reading for a living. Finally, I have concluded that reading is what I am meant to do with my life (it's a form of listening). I look forward to following your writing progress and hope you get into Write of Passage (which, of course, I am on its subscriber's list).
I enjoyed this piece and I appreciate that you take defining a vision seriously enough to write about it.
I think as hard as it is to try capture what we’re trying to do with writing it is a very helpful thing to do. And while I still find this hard to do for myself, I know I echo some of your sentiments in that I want my writing to explore the depths and nuances of our experiences as opposed to producing some surface level stuff that doesn’t do my experience justice.
Thanks Brian. And good luck with getting accepted to your course.
Good luck with your scholarship!
I am very glad you shared “Quantum Poetics.” I think I came across it once mentioned in passing or something but I didn’t look into it, didn’t read this article. But it lines up perfectly with an essay I’m working on. If it doesn’t make its way into the essay explicitly it will at least give me more to chew on as I work on it. Thanks and keep it up, the redesign looks great
