The 1955 version

Glenn Gould is sitting in my head now, getting through Bach’s music with a dexterity that I did not know that a person could have. I believe that they were written to help a rich man fall asleep. The net is too slow for me to verify this immediately. The workings of Gould’s fingers tangle up my mind.

It is appropriate that I write to this — trying to make sense of my own words and of the chaos in somebody else’s life.

And yes, finished the walk!

Notice

A notice two days ago that a friend had just died. A need on my part to work her memory and her passing into whatever word presents itself to me. Remembering how she radiated energy into a whole room full of people, a smile that was impossible not to notice. Notice how things can go wrong, and go wrong fast. Notice how much time I have not got left either — I could have another fifty years and it’s still not enough. Notice bits and pieces of the time as it flashes by and try to will it more important and I don’t think I can and I wonder if it will ever be enough.
