Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

December 30th, 2010
During the tumult that defined the end of 2010, a year as tumultous -- and almost as bad, from my perspective -- as 2013, I somehow found the time to make several trips out into the natural beauty surrounding Tucson with camera in hand. This photo dates from the last excursion of the year, which I took with Skylar on a very cold day while her mother was elsewhere. It was too cold for us to stay outside very long at our destination, Madera Canyon, and even harder to operate our cameras in the chill wind. But we had a good time trying. I remember playing Skylar Joy Division on the drive down, with a very specific memory of that part of I-19 just past its interchange with I-10

I don't visit LJ much these days but I really like that image.

Thanks, man. I am trying to get back in LJ rhythm. I'm not sure why, exactly, but it feels important to me at this juncture in my life.

ABOUT DE FILE
You're looking at content from my Live Journal, which I have been keeping since 2003. I consider it a personal blog, though it lacks stream-of-consciousness revelations that typify that genre.

That said, if you manage to discern the confessional mode within entries that are superficially tight-lipped, I will reward you handsomely. Or at least pretend to do so.

In addition to reflections, however mediated, on my daily activities, De File features periodic excavations of material from my "files," a revelation sure to disturb anyone who has seen my garage. It's an experiment in integrating past and present, perhaps with a little redemption along the way.

Politics is always on my mind, but rarely explicit here. I’m working on a theory about what personal writing like this does to literary identification and why some people resist its pull so powerfully. But my goal is to make that theory dissolve in my practice, a density in liquid.

You'll note that I have links to blogs not on LiveJournal directly above, as well as assorted websites of note. The blogs I read regularly on LiveJournal itself fall under "FRIENDS" at the top, for those of you unfamiliar with LJ’s workings.

You can write me. I'm "cbertsch" before the circle-a and "comcast.net" after it.
