My how things have changed. Our Livejournal friends feed was the original Facebook. Far out. Anyways. I worked as a music therapist for many years living in downtown stl. Lyme disease ruined my marriage, job, and estate. I know am returned to wilderness years and live in mid missouri. Love. It is as it is.

Jeffrey Eugenides: "The most brilliant epigraph in the history of literature comes at the beginning of Gravity's Rainbow: 'Nature does not know extinction; all it knows is transformation. Everything science has taught me, and continues to teach me, strengthens my belief in the continuity of our spiritual existence after death.Wernher Von Braun.' When I first read those words, as a college freshman, I took them at face valueas scientific proof of the reality of the spiritual realm. I had no idea that Von Braun, developer of the V-2, was Hitler's chief rocket scientist. Still less did I know of his salvation at the hands of American troops, or of his rehabilitation in the United States, where he became Nixon's chief rocket scientist and a member of the NASA team that put the first man on the moon (no wonder Von Braun believed in life after death). Let's appreciate everything this epigraph accomplishes: It stems from, and summons, the historical period Pynchon writes about; it simultaneously inspires and lampoons religious sentiment; and, with savage irony, it comes out of the mouth of someone personifying the novel's central themethat the Powers That Be operate behind the scenes, owing allegiance to no nation or ideology ... Pynchon's estimate, back in 1973, of the path the postwar American imperium would take, only seems more acute, valid, and prescient today that it did at the time."

This is the image on the postcard that bill rummaged through his drawers to give me when he declined a photo from me. He was very kind. I told him just as him and kerouac went to see celine that I was there to pay hommage to one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.....certainly essential in my education. We spoke of Creve Coeur lake, genesis p. orridge, rex morgan and krazy kat cartoons. "Dr. Fingers Schafer, as a nemesis, is long gone" he stated after my pertaining question. The jeweled dagger scimitar...brion gysin artwork on the walls, pill book on his coffee table.... I miss his presence on the earth. The last time I saw him was the Nova Convention Revisted in Lawrence KS. I had played sax outside the show. Blondie, Phillp Glass and others performed. He made an all to brief apperence.

To all you in St. Louis. write back if you want to have a pilgramage/picnic/art performance at WSB's grave in Bellfountaine cemetary in the near future
