On The Bright Side

I’ve read David Foster Wallace, Dostoevsky, Proust, Joyce, Faulkner, Pynchon (enough to get a commemorative tattoo), Barthelme; I’ve listened to Sonic Youth, Broken Social Scene, and Bob Dylan live — I’ve had the fortune to hear stunning albums by Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, and gems by The Smiths, Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd. Seen works by Jaspers, Rauschenberg, Twombly, Richter. Brilliant films from everyone from David Simon to the Coen brothers. We live in an era of extreme riches. I wish I could honor it as it’s due, but as aforementioned, time constrains that ambition.
