Sisters and Wolves

My friend Joe Lamb wrote a book and I edited it for him. It’s about werewolves, and it is Quite well written and a Very good read. Although disturbing.

As an aside, I actually brought up a scene of this book, since I am so familiar with it now; in the erotic writing seminar I took with Harmony Eichsteadt (I learned to spell her name since yesterday.. and will be correcting it in yesterday’s entry!) soonsoon!! We were talking about taboo writing topics. I will not spoil Joe’s book for you, but one of the reasons I was so taken with it is because of the interesting way in which he deals with the shadow side of the self. Not many people dare. I try to do that with lyrics and poetry and I am working on other things too that I am hopefully developing with some bravery.

Yesterday we talked about having a responsibility to speak, if one is an artist. I feel as though I have a responsibility to love and to speak about it; since I have a capacity in my heart to do so.

Yesterday was a very full, up-and-down day. Still processing.

I still don’t quite know how lots of it will sort out! More from me later.

    Yay! It was so good to have you there yesterday. Thanks for sharing yourself with us! I can’t wait to read/hear your pieces as you edit and polish them and more gems from you too!

  3. Joe you know my favorite character in the book. It’s really your saddest, beautiful-est writing. Depravity runs on a continuum and when you read of its VeryVery human face you find you’ve no right to judge the weaknesses of others
