the in-laws

My in-laws are in town this week, which means I'm doing more talking and touring than writing. I think it's good to leave writing to others for awhile, then get back to it later. Recently, Michael Stewart visited and we discussed, among many other things, the superabundance of writers and writing in the world today. And how it needs to calm down a bit.

If not ever before, writing is now accepted by the establishment as being present in the world. In general, this is true in NYC- art is everywhere; you can stop giving to the NEA.

So I'm taking a writing rest. I think I might read INFINITE JEST.

should take a rest; not you.
