Another Green Door, and…

Another Bullshit Night in Suck City:

For the 2012 film version, see

(Click image below for a review.)

Personally, I prefer the green door of last night's 10 PM post
(
written partly in honor of the body mentioned here on October 23).

The cover of the Nick Flynn book shows a green door beneath a tree.
For a different tree, but similar metaphor, see Confirmation (July 16, 2007).

Joseph Campbell, and Thomas Merton

Last night's quarter-to-three meditation
linked to one version of "Behind the Green Door."

For those who prefer less heavenly versions

Love Ghost

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 2:45 AM

Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story

is the title of an August 30, 2012, biography
of the late author David Foster Wallace. 
(See a Guardian  review.)

For example…

The Lovely Bones,  Telemark, and  Behind the Green Door.

“I have to break in my new suit
and limber up my muscles somehow,”
said Penny defensively. “One can’t
practice outdoors when there’s no snow.
Now watch this one, Mrs. Weems.
It’s called a telemark.”

Labyrinth 23

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — m759 @ 7:00 PM

The title refers to a search (see below)
suggested by three things—

  1. David Foster Wallace biographer D. T. Max
    "There's a note in one of my files where he says something like,
    'Infinite Jest  was just a means to Mary Karr's end, as it were.' "

  2. "There is a body  on  the cross in my church ." —Mary Karr

  3. A body.

The search Labyrinth 23.

(Within the search results, note particularly the post "The Infinity Point.")

The Lovely Bones

(Continued)

"… and crown thy good with brotherhood…"

"The brothers are charged with murder,
conspiracy to commit murder,
disposing a body,
and tampering with evidence,
according to police."
