2) creation, 3) community

  • (yesterday) sent copies of book to two previous teachers through inter-district mail system with note. each had seen earlier version of book and thought to offer the new one.
  • (yesterday) editing jones conversation of cutting arms open with steak knife. strange to hear his voice again telling of the police shooting him and the blood stains on the carpet - so many years since I saw him last. the conversation might have been one of our last. left word with dad, who avoids a call from him once or twice a year looking for me, to pass along website. might send him the book and music with his piece. over one hundred edits, 20 minutes long, and the tape hiss nearly unbearable - had used a standard tape recorder and line out of phone to record it. the tape recorder became very loud after a few years.
