This reminds me powerfully of Jake, my bodhisattva, whom I miss more than I can say. Aging is a long series of goodbyes. The trick is to keep saying hello.

June 21, 1913
I just completed a one month, 200 article subscription to the New Orleans Picayune archives. Damn, there's some great stuff in there. I wish I had nothing but time - well, time plus the necessary inspiration and discipline to do the writing. As it is, I squeeze in an hour here or there. Slow but steady.
I'm working on a piece about Storyville. "White Slavery" has made an appearance, as has Emma Goldman, strangely enough. I've followed the research down some strange rabbit holes. Now I have to WRITE.
