intuitive reflection on Snow

seamless dissolving (politics | intimacy)
slowness, whiteness, coldness, ambiguous, accumulating texture
edge of (poetry | mysticism)
vulgarity blameless lying
palms friction heat


snow--orhan pamuk

i keep it aside a few days, get back into it after a few--lots of starts and stops. george (dimmock) mentioned reading it last year, and maybe i saw it on your fbk bookshelf...?

so great you are here, garima. i love pamuk! his essay in ISTANBUL: MEMORIES OF A CITY called "Hüzün" (on a very nuanced place-based sense of melancholy) haunts me.
