About this site:
In 1993, I spent the year writing in a blank datebook from 1954. Now, in 2010, I'm posting each page on the web and writing about it. You may want to start at the beginning.

1954: October 17-18

"Sancta Simplicitas," sacred simplicity -- something from my philosophy class, I think.

Box of Trees was a cartoon that ran in the school newspaper, The Lantern, for at least a couple of my college years. I was very pro-designated driver back then (still am), and this strip really appealed to me.

As I said here, Brandon's first letter to me at school was a great respite from a lousy day. He set a precedent for length with this first one -- 16 pages was extra long, but not outside the realm of the usual for him. It was an inside joke between us to measure his letters as novels, novellas or pamphlets.

The David Rice and Luka bloom tapes were an added bonus. I had introduced him to Luka Bloom (as Kate H. had introduced me), and he had come across his second US album and taped it for me. David Rice was someone his friends at KCAI introduced him to. That first album, "Orange Number 8," went into heavy rotation on my stereo that year. I still play it on occasion.
