I’m howling. Literally, I just spent fifteen minutes just howling. This is normal now; I just don’t talk about it, except maybe I should.

I’m damaged, but Velma stuck with me. She understood me. Now she’s gone. I’m alone. Every day, I’m silently in misery; I’m howling, but there’s no one to hear, and even if there was, they’d leave (not that I’m mad about leaving; I’m grateful for every minute my friends and family spends with me).

I’m damaged. I’m alone. But mostly, Velma’s gone. She’s gone. We were going to spend the rest of our lives together, blissfully. We talked about what would happen if one of us died. It was an uncomfortable subject. I said, especially after the stroke, that I wasn’t sure I could make it without her. That distressed her, and she always made me promise that I would at least try.

What reason should I live for? I know that eventually the hurt will ebb. But what should I live for?

I’m trying, Velma.

Every time I choke up.

Helen (Velma’s sister) called yesterday as the day was approaching the end. She told me that Velma’s New York memorial had gone well, and she told me specific things that made me feel good, as much as possible.

Velma, she said, would say it went passably. I laughed. Laughs are [few and far between]*.

We read to each other, at first constantly, then sputteringly, and then, with my stroke, it ended. I’m trying to assemble which fictions that I read to her. (For some reason, it’s much easier to remember the ones I read to her than the ones Velma read to me.)

So, at random, probably added to later:

Joanna Russ, Picnic on Paradise
→ “Nobody’s Home”
→ “My Boat”
Souls
→ “Bodies”
Barry Hughart, Bridge of Birds
Flann O’Brien, The Third Policeman

Michael Bishop, “The Quickening”
Pamela Dean, The Dubious Hills
M. John Harrison, “Egnaro”
Francesca Lia Block, Weetzie Bat

No, really.

Okay, it’s also called Chaetophractus vellerosus, but it loses something in Latin.

I read various music blogs, some of them on Blogger. Today I was looking up another person’s bio, and I realized that I probably had a Blogger bio, because I had a picture - but I hadn’t looked at it in ages. Probably before my stroke.

So I looked. And I did have a bio (the same one that I have here); but I also had a aborted blog: Another Thick Square Blog, which is a great name for a blog, and I shouldn’t have punted it. And there was one post, dated 10 April 2008:

Always scribble, scribble, scribble, eh, Mr Gibbon? Scribble scribble scribble Mr Gibbon Gibbon Gibbon. Scribblin’ gibbon. Can you say that, Mr Gibbon? Eh? Scribblin’ scribblin’ scribblin’ gibblon. It’s a bit of a tongue workout, eh, Mr Gibbon? Mr Gibblon gabblin’ gobblin’ Gibbon. Eh? Eh? You’re a good sport Mr Gibbon, I always say. Thanks for the book.

I don’t think I took a Blogger blog seriously….

Sure, grief is natural and proper, but it’s healthier for the survivors to move on.

Hewlett married Hilda Beatrice Herbert on 3 January 1888 in St. Peter’s Church, Vauxhall, where her father was the incumbent vicar. The couple had two children, a daughter, Pia, and a son, Francis, but separated in 1914, partly due to Hilda’s increasing interest in aviation.</p>

I dislike album titles that pun upon a person’s name. It’s very easy, usually, and most of the time it doesn’t pun any further. Like most puns, it’s child’s play. (If you must pun on this entry — I know that some people take it as a challenge — please pun in at least two dimensions.)

But Roy Haynes, boy: I hope that the title of his 1992 album, When It’s Haynes It Roars, wasn’t his idea.

Does anybody write “replica” without first writing “exact”?

Oh: I’m back. Cheers.

For the last two or three weeks, I plunged into Field Gulls (”The stupidest name in smart football analysis”). It’s heady; I didn’t know there was a smart Seahawks site, and this one is very smart.

I will be back very soon. I’m not going away.

….and you can ignore it. (Oh, like you usually stay up at night worrying.)

Anyway. “Hot mess” — unless you are using it in a different way than everybody, please just remove “hot”. It’s past vogue.

I’m slowly getting together a list of the best albums of 1978, and I’m wondering: is it because the year 1978 was incredible, up there with the best years of music, I’m having trouble thinking of a better year, or even thinking of a competition; or is it because I was fourteen?

edit: 1959 is a strong all-jazz year.

“Chuck Norris had twins at 61.” That thought, published today with a “impressed” veneer, has a little piece of information left out. The piece that shoves it into “who cares” territory.

You know, Darren Sharper is a loathsome man. Yet, only in America will the likelihood that he will be raped in prison get a laugh. In fact, that joke is so predictable, it’s sobering. We should be appalled that everybody assumes that anyone sentenced to prison also means sentenced to be raped.
