by J J Cohen

But I want to tell some stories about unexpected invitations, and so tonight I will speak about beginning to blog, drowning in ecological endeavors, a circulation of stone and energy, a trip to Australia and the honor of meeting Stephanie Trigg's father, a tornado in Michigan and an intensity of writing, exploratory critical modes, the articulation of new materialities, blundering and discovery.
