Tortoise Tripleheader
Felicia is proud to announce the return of tortoise season, a threshold marked not only by her brother Max's decision to join her in above-ground pursuits, but the release of a new single by the eponymous post-rock outfit identified with Chicago's Thrill Jockey label. It's a great song, which works oddly well when you play it in two or three overlapping browser windows. In the words of Felicia, "It's tasty!"

In the spirit of full disclosure, though, I have to confess that Felicia has been cruising since February -- it was an unusually mild winter in Tucson -- thereby prompting me to revise a line from a poem I composed in the callowness of youth: "Even this tortoise here knows no time. . ."

I'm glad you liked the poem. The poet in question was Thom Gunn, who was very clear about what he did and didn't like and a pretty harsh critic. But he had a beautiful voice, in which he read every seminar participant's poems out loud, and brought a great deal of wisdom to his critical judgments. Plus, he was in the Norton Anthology, so that counts for something!
