I could have declared provisional closure on my organization of my mass of notes from the past year, but I decided to merge into the “Cycle 4” process notes from the past four years that were spread around several other projects which have now disappeared into the merging.

I’ve had lots of chances for email contacts, which is more satisfying than posting online to whomever. And there has been too much commenting at the NYTimes and other sites—“too much” because that inhibits my rate of progress with the main project.

But I’m happy.

Her joy, fearlessness, devotion to living her artistry, and obsession with the uncanniness, the ephemerality of being, was awing.

I’m too occupied to do an update beyond the August 4 update. Sorry.

But that update links to a new posting on Habermas.

In the future, I’m going to note all new material at Twitter, as well as here. That includes blog postings elsewhere that I also indicate here. Separately, I’m going to note all new material at my other Twitter account.

In a filmic sense, my social life is largely voiceover.
