I pasted up the magazine at the printers and for all I know it is printed now. It is B&W this time, those get done faster, 40 pages, which is thin, but that is good as far as saving money. Sometimes i have to shift gears into businessman identity. I do it pretty good actually, i could be a bloodthirsty shark but there just ain’t the poetry on that end of the pond.
So I have a flare up of gout today. I have had this condition for many years. I rarely talk about my health but I am in excruciating pain. this happens a lot after I have been sick for a while, it is the body being taxed. Having gout was central to my decision to quit drinking. I control it through diet these days BUT I have been eating pretty gnarly lately – fast food, rich food, or as I call it, deadline food.
Anyway, the new issue looks great, Marty the designer did a great job. My place is really trashed after this deadline. We have to start installing shelves for the next show, small sculpture by Sandra Vista. I made sure to create a window of time to get this done. I am going to go up to the Bay Area to give a talk about the art world. I will post the pertinent info once i get it. Hmm, anything else? I am frazzled, in pain and surrounded by clutter. But I am always happy when a new issue is coming out and that should be today.
