How to prepare for a camping trip, acc’ing to me and my best friend

1. Have dad send childhood tent; hold breath and pray it is not infested with mold; say a prayer of thanks for your parents’ OCD cleaning ways (29 years too late.)

2. Get eyeliner from the beauty store for the wedding at the end of the trip

3. Download the Facebook app while you still have wifi.

4. Get in car.

I want to say something wonderful for the ones who have so much faith: “We have to drink the stupefying cup of darkness and wake up to ourselves, nourished and surprised.” The dark makes the light. I love this stuff.
Tonight I want to say something wonderful
for the sleepwalkers who have so much faith
in their legs, so much faith in the invisible

arrow carved into the carpet, the worn path
that leads to the stairs instead of the window,
the gaping doorway instead of the seamless mirror

I love way that…

I’ve really gotten into this movement over the last few years, and I can attest to the healing benefits and light feeling of having the corners cleaned out, allowing the light in, knowing what all your stuff, and therefore “stuff,” is.

This is really cool and compares the first 35,000 lyrics of each rapper to the first 5,000 words of 7 of Shakespeare’s plays, and Moby Dick’s first 35,000 words.

It looks like a happy, leaping person. Maybe I’m biased as a Taurus who aspires to happiness that feels like dancing on starlight, but I like it.

I love rap. Rap is modern poetry. Poetry classically was spoken. It also was nonsensical and angry and aspirational and reflected the culture of its time; all the things that rap are. It also happens to be set to great beats. This treatment turns all that on its head, in an innocent format: children’s play music. This is actually really deep, and superficially delicious.

INTERVIEWER

Finally, a fundamental question: as a creative writer what do you think is the function of your art? Why a representation of fact, rather than fact itself?

HEMINGWAY

Why be puzzled by that? From things that have happened and from things as they exist and from all things that you know and all those you cannot know, you make something through your invention that is not a representation but a whole new thing truer than anything true and alive, and you make it alive, and if you make it well enough, you give it immortality. That is why you write and for no other reason that you know of. But what about all the reasons that no one knows?

INTERVIEWER

It has been said that a writer only deals with one or two ideas throughout his work. Would you say your work reflects one or two ideas?

HEMINGWAY

Who said that? It sounds much too simple. The man who said it possibly had only one or two ideas.
