This blog is about attentuations and accentuations, about affect and those fragments of emotion that “shimmer” into “unprecedented states” and “burning activity.” This is about becoming and not-becoming, about the parables of the everyday and the fine gradients of interaction that make up this “worldly world.”

“Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works, yet we require critics to explain the one and biographers to expound the other.” — Virginia Woolf

What you read here is neither a lie nor a confession, though I use my life, my vision. If anything, it is myth, practiced. I hide nothing. I reveal.

“It is an arrogance and sometimes a bore to begin with oneself. But I do not know where else to begin, where else to find the same, where else to find the different.” — Greg Dening

One begins with the only natural contrivance one knows really well.

It is no use just to write “the truth”; one has “to write it for and to somebody, somebody who can do something with it.” –Bertolt Brecht

What I catalyse, transform, engender, remains the measure of my literary life.
