Among the contents:
--poetry books, of course--in this case, including SATURA by Eugenio Montale, POEMS 1955-1959 AND AN ESSAY IN AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Boris Pasternak, my REPRODUCTIONS OF THE EMPTY FLAGPOLE that I'm chiseling for poem-sculptures like these in Muddy River Poetry River...
--THE LIMITS OF LANGUAGE edited by Walker Gibson, featuring William James, A.N. Whitehead, James B. Conant, Herbert J. Muller, P.W. Bridgman, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Jeal-Paul Sartre, William Barrett, Gertrude Stein, Virginia Woolf and Wallace Stevens
--computer open to Wall Street Journal blogs
--most importantly, a photo of my dawgs and a German Shepherd sculpture--dogs keep moi heart supple in face of worldly hardness...
