Days have been busy and not busy all at once. Las Vegas with the family was lovely, exhausting but lovely. I had one of those sublime moments that brought tears to my eyes. I'm writing about it and hope to publish it. Famous last words but I really do think this piece has potential.
I'm very much in love with Best Contemporary Mexican Fiction. I picked it up in L.A. a few weeks ago and have finally dipped into it. This one will take a while. It needs to be savored and held. The writing is mesmerizing. The work appears untranslated and translated so that I can read both. I prefer the writing in Spanish, the language is more nuanced and haunting. It makes me want to revisit the short story form. I know that good writers can make anything look easy but I really did enjoy writing short stories. I have a few of them saved around here somewhere.
Something feels like it is about to happen. It is buzzing around behind my head and has been for a few days. Maybe I just have expectations or desire something to happen. I don't know. I often get this sensation of being on the verge of something often it comes into fruition and sometimes it doesn't.
