Spirit Training

Tristan Foster and I began an email correspondence last year, when he interviewed me for 3:AM Magazine. The exchange continued for months after that, as we agreed to experiment with the usual demands of the interview format, and allow the threads of our conversation to unravel over a longer period of time. The second part, now published on Minor Literature[s], is mainly focused on Tristan’s book Letter to the Author of the Letter to the Father (out on Transmission Press next month). It is called Spirit Training

Sigh, A Dream / Daniela Cascella

but the string that binds them

When I was asked to contribute to the Visiting Practitioners Lecture Series at LCC on Thursday 19 April, I knew this would be a great chance for me to begin and re-read my three books as chapters of one book; and to begin and hear the less deliberate yet present echoes and returns in the three of them, and to begin to sense where chapter 4 might rebegin. I started indexing the three books, and my attention was driven as much to the echoes and premonitions (the thread around sigh, breath, necessity and Ananke is not yet exhausted: I know this, having spent the last few months re-reading Calasso and Hillman) as to the lacunae and what is still unspoken. I realised how these books do not seek explanation but connections: to be in other ears and eyes, and to nest in them.
Maybe chapter 4 will rewrite or paraphrase these books inside-out: from their inner lining, lingering on words such as chance, taste, quietude.
Meanwhile, this Thursday: old songs, speechlessness, a post-punk band from Italy, some Robert Aldrich. And this, from John Cage’s Lecture on Something:
