W. Kandinsky: "There are no 'musts' in art." T.S. Eliot: "There is no freedom in art." Dostoievski character, after the ancient Middle East epigram: "Everything is permitted." (R-rated weblog. Since one has been advised there is no Literature anymore, or even literature, only writing, one proceeds on the premise that this weblog qualifies as not-meaningless, since it is, or appears to be, a form of "writing."

Farewell Higgins, Hello OCD Gambling
Finished reading Defending Billy Ryan, which was enjoyable and had an authentic feel but represented a deviation from one's research plan, and started on an autobiography by a compulsive gambler. Oh and by the way The Norton Anthology of Modern Poetry (1973) contains so much intellectual chaos and sheer mental garbage that it's almost unbelievable.
