Situating Myself
Here's another picture from the Picture of the Moment archive that I have yet to include in an entry.

danlmarmot took it in January, when he, cpratt, and sinnabor -- who refers to my loss of karaoke virginity (to "Y.M.C.A.", remember!) in his account of Spring Thaw, which coincided with the EMP conference -- all stopped by my office for a brief visit. This is my reality.

CLB and Chris in ML 428

Believe it or not, I can actually identify a number of the books on the shelf in the background.

Mode: flarn
Muse: Die Interimsliebenden - Einstürzende Neubauten - Strategies Against Architecture III

I'm a bit disoriented by the office pic and it troubles me. Location of the photographer, for instance, angles.

I might see Bourdieu on a top shelf, or I might not. Or I might see my bookshelves in your bookshelves, misidentify.

I am not at all surprised you can identify your books from spines.

The jacaranda trees are starting to bloom here and when I first learned of them I had been reading the spines of your books, had felt my spine bent by the weight of a final semester of books. My spine did not break and will not.

Beware the narratives of loss but since you're singing now there's perhaps a future there. I'm shades of terrible. I love it.

Re: things

Yes, isn't the angle just grand. so hard to achieve, especially with the vertical distance between Chris and myself.

Not Bourdieu, sadly.

Maybe I will sing again.

I applaud the passion. It suits your style.
