Good night--

I've been celebrating the end of the day by watching lots of Pina Bausch choreography on youtube. You can too! And now here's the trailer from Pina by Wim Wenders.  And now I am ready for dreaming.


  1. It must be thrilling feeling to have and hold your book after all the struggles giving it birth and seeing it to maturity and about to be sent out to the world. Bravo, Marly!

    I love the image on your post two back, with the arrangement of sculpture, carved jar and your book - exquisite!

  2. Oops, I meant this comment to go to "So far: interviews" - feel free to move it. I need my morning coffee....

  3. Oh, a little disorganization never hurt a blog!

    The sculpture is a giveaway from housecleaning at a local church. The pot is by a family of potters in Dillsboro, North Carolina. By the young daughter, Zan Barnes. www.riverwoodpottery.com


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
