so many topics, so little time
40+ topics? (rendered here) [Jan. 12, 2018: now so antedated, because:...]. What is a topic anyway?
One topic I wanted to play through is merely a little inhabitation of ‘graciousness,’ another, way down the road, a massive consideration of art after the overt “Conceptual Art” movement. (But isn’t all art involved with conceptuality? So, what’s especially “Conceptual”?)
And when does an identified movement end? Is it, like a concert or a great novel or a life, just a matter of closure of attention (but an afterlife continues inasmuch as we keep one alive to our own going on?).
“let me hear your long lifted note”
That’s the second line of Merwin’s “The Nomad Flute.”
