At the weekend I got Ian Patterson’s Selected Poems 1969-2002 and I found one in there that suited my purposes – Without Rhyme or Reason. Each line but the last begins ‘I maybe…….’ – ‘I may be shrouded in defiant haze/I may be driving from place to place’
Is this parataxis? Can you think of a song which proceeds similarly? The book came with a nice card from someone at Salt.
I held back from a plunge into De Leuze – really it was a matter of opportunity. It will happen sooner or later. We saw Sideways at the weekend which I thought was great – utterly DL too. Those intensities.
Yesterday Keith and I went to the International Research Centre at Warwick. I came away with an opportunity to repitch an idea I had cast their way about six months ago. I put together a proposal and sent it off with fingers crossed.
The average daily page calls on KK in February is up to 70 – that’s mostly down to restarting KK News. I have put an editorial up about the Lullabies event which is probably a bit light.
Gilbert is sending Mark his group CD and his ND interpretations I think.
Steve and I had a long talk about the different opportunities that we are both working on with an academic dimension. We mapped them out on a time/space grid to work out what our next move might be.
Some case studies came through about organizational change and ITC and I knocked out some comments.
Time passed quite slowly.
