When I was a child, I loved Edgar Lee Master's Spoon River Anthology, following connections. So then, I just had to create my own world, Marble Springs, a Colorado mining town where it could be ferreted out who the town whore's daughter's father really was. In my town, the links tell what cannot be put into words. This work is now reborn as a wiki--come join the fun.
Fundamentally, I just want people to understand
I have reve(a)lled in the new waves of meaning that flash, motion, images, navigation, links, sound and more can bring to literature. Yet I found that few folks understand the nuances, the delicate touch behind these juxtapositions, and so I wrote Fundamentals, a textbook that explains how to read and interpret these works, as well as write them.
My love, MaJe Larsen (co-author of A Modern Moral Fairy Tale), and I had an incredible four years together before her untimely death from cancer, and her words still echo in my heart. So, now, I am fulfilling a promise to share my secred nuanced code language with all of you. This is a massive project, with its own website: www.thinkingrose.com.
