Nobody's creekbed

songs, prayers, poetry, stories, art, photographs, moving pictures, fondnesses, tall-tales and meditations

creekbed is usually not a site wherein I link to other things, but the new short story by one of my favorite authors, David Foster Wallace, in the New Yorker, is so fine and affected me so greatly that I had to share it:

Good People

Promises fulfilled, David. Thank you.

(My personal accountant tells me this story is worth ten dozen creekbed posts. And he's known to sweeten the facts for me.)

Many thanks to one of my very favorite websites, largehearted boy, for alerting me to the online presence of Wallace's new story. I love leargehearted boy and highly recommend making it a daily or semi-daily read if you enjoy today's wildly dynamic musical and literary happenings and the people behind them.

Many good days and nights to you, friends. I will have more words here soon.

Ev'ry Once In A While,
Treats Not Soon Forgotten
In the Passing of Things
