AnnMarie Rudin Lille, 02-février. 12 I slept in.

This point is called Brittany (Breizh). Its cliffs are very well acquainted with dark ocean storms and with the awfully unpredictable strength of […]

Reading Michaux’s Portrait of the Meidosems

Darren Jackson Photo: carlsonimkeller Although it’s been many years since I first escaped into the tormented mythology of the Meidosems, the images still hold me the way the Meidosems’ grip one of their children of the soul, dangled by the ankle “in the wind and the rain” (115)*. I had moved to the south of […]
