I am wondering what y'all think about this...? Way back in 1983, I decided it would be worthwhile to create a work of pseudo-fiction that would capture the reality of life in the world of 1983, being very conscious of a prior work, 1984. But I wanted something that would be different... something that would convey, in a stream-of-consciousness way, what it was like to be alive in 1983 and be considering the current state of affairs. I was after a deeply personalized, intuitive kind of effect... and what I ended up with was page after page of single sentences, sometimes fragments of a sentence... without explanation. An example: The text of the first page reads: "It fills the silence, it fills the breath. It informs everything, and everything hence." Pretty abstract-- until you realize I am referring to the murder of John Lennon, a pivotal event from 1980. And it goes on and on like that. Now-- is this just strictly a secret testimony of my own, unique experience? Or is there any way that a readership could understand or appreciate it? Two more, random pages: "The end of an era is calling... should I take a message?" And: "Party like it's 1999. One day, it will be." What does everyone think?
