|I have here, chapter by chapter, my autobiography from
Fall 1999 to the present. I am always perplexed by people who
ask whatís new, or how thing are going, as Iím never sure whether they
want the complete story about how I went to a play, what I thought about the
play, how it could have been better, and how the play affected the rest of the
week (or whatever the latest incident was), or if they are just being polite and
donít really want to waste the time to hear all the minute details of my life
(I have a suspicion that it is the latter) . I
found a rather mundane but effective way to circumvent these scenes by
sending out a newsletter. It is by EĖmail, mostly, but a privileged few receive it in
paper and ink form,
and it tells everyone what has happened in the past month or so. By doing
this, I also feel less guilty about not writing a diary for when Iím 85 and want
to read about when I was young and carefree (or so I assume I will appear to
myself at that distant point in the future). So here I give you my newsletters.
I will usually to post the latest one shortly after I send it out.
