Clear out your mind

Well, Jeanette Winterson is in town flogging her memoir. Some viewers might remember that I saw her a few years ago when she was flogging her then book, The Stone Gods, which I enjoyed reading. JW is an accomplished public speaker and a professional relator. She speaks pretty much the same as she blogs except that she’s going nineteen to the dozen. Woo, pay attention people! It’s always livening to hear an author read, especially when one learns the background to the book and other bits about the author. It was an entertaining and breathless evening with JW. But I had the most fun at dinner at the foreshore, under the Opera House, looking at the Bridge. It was cold and lovely. Will post pics later.

Anyway, as I was getting carried by JW’s words, I caught a shimmer of the ole excitement that made me want to write (yonks ago) and a gentle thirst for reading, well, more. I’m still wafting between genres, mostly non-fiction but all kinds of non-fiction. Sadly, none of my immediate circle are interested in reading.

JW will be joining a panel on Gay Marriage this Saturday.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
