"we live forward, but we understand backwards"

Just devoured two books whole in one sitting: Nicanor Parra's After-Dinner Declarations and Ada Limon's Shark in the Rivers. These, along with the steady regimen of vitamins, jogs, trumpet practice, and writing, keep the spirit ignited and beast-like.
I just got my hands on Patti Smith's Just Kids, which I'm going to try and knock out this week.

I remember receiving a rejection slip on Christmas Eve one year.
