saturdaynote



I’ve done 5 of 9 parts of a brief project, “a creative life,” whose vanilla title is understatement in backgrounding an upcoming discussion of The Life of Imagination. I expect to have the brief project finished this coming week, but I’ll give myself two weeks before updating again. And I’ll upload it all at once.

I have no idea how long afterward I’ll take to discuss The Life, but I’m committed to doing something that Jennifer will enjoy.

W. S. Merwin died yesterday. I did a short note about that, but didn’t intimate that he’s important to me.

about so-called “Heidegger’s” “Silence”



What do you read in a text's silence?

For a sound silence” is indirectly about Heidegger scholars who read in bad faith (but what-the-hell: it advances their careers).

the cohering grows



”Thinking of Heidegger teaching: prefacing a riverrun,” provides a sense of interpretive practice which, for the first time, connects my slumbering Heidegger Studies project with the larger-scale work of The Project. I'm very happy with this improvisation.

moving on



“At last,...”; yet, it’s nothing like a major goal. It’s a milestone, which is
a waystation on a path.

Having known the distant peak for years—though expecting it to be transformed by upcoming ventures of bibliophilia—I gained
an entranceway that’s also prospective of aspiration.

inner appeal, outer appeal.. writing life



My winter cycle of “The Project currently” is done, and the gedavis.com website links primarily to new material.

At last, I have an introductory coherence of The Project that I’ve sought for over a year. And at last, I have the linkage between the two websites that I intended over a year ago.

Let her be love as a letter: free awing.

speculative pleasure



So, Gary, what’s it all really about?”

I’m glad you asked.

But expect that a penultimate foray deserves to presume its terms
(no links to earlier discussions).

It is what it is.
(Can’t go wrong there.)

discursive moments



Discursive moments” is done (for this winter—come spring).
The subtitle probably seems precious: “…: mind evolving.”
Think of ‘moments’ as “importances” and ‘mind’ as verbal “care.”

Play is the thing of course



I’ve divided the very conceptual “philological play” Area of The Project into a 4-section first part, “Play is the thing of course: from ‘-ology’ to philogeny,” which prefaces the 4-section main part of “philological play.”

Altogether, it’s happily quite long—major work (for me).

“genius”



It’s a good-spirited (eudaimonic) mystery.


for a good story of a “worthwhile” life



Generalities, generalities… That can be good, if the terms are durable, for a life that’s always growing up, achieving lots, paying forward, moving on.



“The” past is never finally written



“The” past is made to serve future-oriented living. The past didn’t create the world. One’s always rewriting one’s past.

turn of the year and a plight of inspired writing



The short story is that I have a lot of new material online (links upcoming). The long story is that writing process can get as tedious as this posting.

Late December, I began a set of short paragraphs to provide a good sense of what each Area of Cycle 4 of The Project is to be about. I suceeded, but “short” (e.g., “wholly flourshing”) led to much longer, preface after preface (e.g., “creative conceptuality”). This began to cause feeling need to do postings later this month that would preface what I wanted to presume for my Area prefaces now, but hadn’t introduced. So, that caused me to more or less stop earlier than I’d intended, until I get the postings done.
