My enjoyment was restricted to the very real pleasure of watching entitlement end. The immunities of great privilege have expired. You’re no different from the next guy. You’re mortal, and it’s ugly. What it is is you’re small, while the plain is vast and the sky is wide and the food is very far away. Welcome to they world, it’s here to stay. It was never gone. You just couldn’t see it through your driver and your doorman and the Asian dude holding your takeout.

And as much as I’d like to believe there’s a truth beyond illusion, I’ve come to believe that there’s no truth beyond illusion. Because, between ‘reality’ on the one hand, and the point where the mind strikes reality, there’s a middle zone, a rainbow edge where beauty comes into being, where two very different surfaces mingle and blur to provide what life does not: and this is the space where all art exists, and all magic.

…And just as music is the space between notes, just as the stars are beautiful because of the space between them, just as the sun strikes raindrops at a certain angle and throws a prism of color across the sky —- so the space where I exist, and want to keep existing, and to be quite frank I hope I die in, is exactly this middle distance: where despair struck pure otherness and created something sublime.

Calling all Arkansans

I don’t know if you know this, but Tom Cotton, a freshman Representative, wants to unseat incumbent Senator Mark Pryor. Pryor may not be perfect, but he has worked hard at his job, fighting for everyday, working Arkansans for years. He’s not looking to further his career when he only just started, like Mr. Cottonmouth. (You know, because he’s a snake a lot of talk.) If you believe Mr. Pryor is looking out for your best interests as I do and want to see him reelected over Cotton, then use hashtag Pryorities to sound off and let people know you think Pryor has his priorities straight and Cotton doesn’t.
