Today I read an article and have a hard time getting through it since I check all of the sources, people, images and so on. ( A 1977 Paris Review interview with Celine and he talks about Paul Morand, Ramuz, and Barbusse and the fall of Stalingrad – so I’m looking up each writer to get a sense of who they are and what they have done and the whole kernel of Stalingrad – the turning point of WWII. This is in addition to all of the associated images of people and events. )
I am lucky to finish the piece.
Reading near the internet is now like living inside a neural network that is firing continuously right at your: eyes, head, brain, ears, emotions, sex.
I get caught up in the neural experience, the electricity, the emotion, the speed, the rush…..
I look over to my list of “Zen Things” on the wall and read ” Do one thing at a time. Do it well”.
