Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Share
It has been a month since I posted a photo here, the longest gap by far since I first began using LJ, back before I got my digital camera in late January, 2004. I wanted to share this because seeing the roses blooming despite the brutal June heat here in Tucson brightens my spirits and because I need to get out of the frame of mind that would have me only post when I can compensate for my absence by something grandiose and no doubt tedious to others.

If you'd asked me whether fiery orange and hot pink went well together before moving to Tucson, well, I would have thought you were crazy. But this color scheme is everywhere here and now I love it.

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.
