The image above is titled Re-Genesis. The Greenwich Workshop is creating a small print of it and I'm so glad. It's one of my favorite paintings.
Weight by Jeanette Winterson
This weekend on my airplane trips I finally indulged and read Weight, a book I've been saving like a treat. I have loved everything I've read by Winterson. Here is a paragraph from the book:
Autobiography is not important. Authenticity is important. The writer must fire herself through the text, be the molten stuff that welds together disparate elements. I believe that there is always exposure, vulnerability, in the writing process which is not to say it is either confessional or memoir. Simply, it is real.
Thank you PAX for the book.
