    Dear Sotere,

    This was nice to listen to, and the “radio” format is a refreshing approach (in fact, maybe every Harriet blogger should be asked to do one of these, so we might hear his or her voice. It does add something).

    I hope, though, now that you’ve said hello in such a personal and delightful way, that your future posts will be in written form. The reason is simply that most people are not going to be able to sit and listen for five or six minutes, and so your audience on audio, I fear, will be much smaller than otherwise.

    Glad you are one of the new people posting here. Hope you’ll share some stories from the glory years with Berrigan, et. al. I really enjoyed your book with Skanky Possum…

    Dear Mr.Torregian, I cannot hear anything. The line fills with a green fuse on the screen of my PC. That is all. The poet Jill Magi, yesterday, described the sensation of “hearing yourself look,” at Anish Kapoor’s MEMORY at the Guggenheim; similarly, I can see myself listening to you, but I cannot hear you, Sotere. My phone number in my hollow, where I am, in Vermont, like some kind of non-explicit Punjabi version of a Hobbit, is 802 454 8311, ext. 238 or 326. 326 is scrawled next to the 238, so it could be either one. I will be here for a few more days, if you’d like to call. I mean, maybe you were singing or something. Something delighted the others. What is a “great listen”, for example? It’s a noun.
