sent over from poland



[urban history is the first. otherness is the second.]

**grzegorz wroblewski has some new paintings up at "the new post-literate gallery of asemic writing" & sent the link over this morning for me to see new work.

very interesting.

since i had such a vague concept of what "asemic writing" is, i thought you might too. so here's good wiki:

Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means "having no specific semantic content".[1] With the nonspecificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning which is left for the reader to fill in and interpret. All of this is similar to the way one would deduce meaning from an abstract work of art. The open nature of asemic works allows for meaning to occur trans-linguistically; an asemic text may be "read" in a similar fashion regardless of the reader's natural language. Multiple meanings for the same symbolism are another possibility for an asemic work.

**I just read & presented on dear Rhys Sargasso yesterday in class. Been thinking about the station of being female in writing. Also thinking on station of "liminal" within one's writing. Liminal. I love that word. I love ls.

It's a beautiful windy day in Tucson & my last day of work just got postponed to later this week. I'm hanging in today. And of course eating a lot.
