Interview with Yvonne Meier, Part Two
Today, I'm working on writing a proposal for a workshop at the Perkins School for the Blind, writing a paper proposal for the fall oral history conference in Cleveland, applying for a job in another region of the country, and working on my mother's website, a bit. I'm feeling far too diffusely focused, which is why I went to tennis class this morning, instead of working. Now, I can't stop surfing the web and I aimed to get cracking on my own writing by 4. NOT HAPPENING. I promise to force myself to do the above, if you force yourself to do something, too.

From January 7, 2012

Good morning. I'm polishing my nails yellow, reading Rebecca's incredible book, drinking from Cary's mug. Shortly, I'm heading to teach this in Catskill, and I will be attending this, tonight: shape-note singing and Bulgarian folk songs. Perfect Hudson day.

From January 6, 2012

You have no faith in the version of the book or play you are working on but are unwilling to change it, telling yourself that this would mean a lot of trouble and that time is short. Meanwhile, however, a rebellious element inside you has secretly created its own anti-version, complete down to the last detail, and is waiting for a chance to produce and impose it. If the rebellion succeeds, outside observers are amazed at the speed and smoothness with which the takeover is accomplished.Rebellions may be made smoothly, but never without causing psychological disturbance.
-C Isherwood, The Guru and His Disciple

Oh, Pina. I miss you. I was blessed with a lot of good film, company, and food over the last two days. On Monday, I interviewed Yvonne Meier, which made this a perfect week of dance, having spent time with my two favorite choreographers.
