The Win

A month ago, I posted this on Facebook — but there’s no obvious or convenient way to search your Facebook history, so after copious backward time-traveling, I recovered it and will post it here, easily searchable to me and the world:

At the end of the day, we live in a world with good food and people we can love and that’s in the ‘win’ column. And it’s a big enough win that no matter how horrible things get, even on a day when I can’t say that I really even believe that, I know it’s true.
      — John Darnielle in The Life Of The World To Come (the movie)

And now, back to writing the article about Darnielle.

    Have you stopped blogging?

    Well, in one sense I’ve been blogging more actively for the past while than I had been for the weeks before that; but if you would like more personal, reflective writing, that’ll come after I finish the article, four lectionary helps, and two book reviews that I’m working on just now. Article is almost entirely done; one book review is mostly written out. But it’s hard to generate much surplus literary energy when my (ill-considered) commitments lay claim to the first-fruits of my imagination.

    OK, I know you are busier than I where it’s exciting watching the grass grow but I am not Facebooking!
    I love you regardless!
