Keeping Order

Slowly I take off my shoes and roll up my pants before dipping my toe the right big one back into the vast pond that is the blogosphere. More than three months have passed since I last posted here. Why? I’ve been busy as hell, for one thing: researching and writing my book, working with my agent to get it in front of publishers; and expanding my publicity services. More to follow about both.

About these last few months, with its challenges and achievements and occasional disappointments, I’m reminded of a passage from Robert Bresson’s Diary of a Country Priest (based on the Georges Bernanos novel). With a face like a pinched and pious James Dean, Claude Laydu as the country priest writes in his diary: 

Keep order all day long,
knowing full well disorder
will win out tomorrow,
because in this sorry world,
the night undoes the work of the day.

I’ll be back soon.
