I remembered this fine older conversation from back in 1999, and sure enough it gives a lovely backdrop to today. Perhaps somebody else will enjoy re-reading it too.

Thanks, Gail... I have been remembering that I did an Inkwell conversation before, didn't realize how very long ago it was. (I myself won't be rereading it, though a visit with an earlier self could be interesting at some point... )

I hope Jane wasn't one of them.

I rather imagine that was supposed to go in the Occupy topic. I used to think that it would be dishonorable to die without having spent a night in jail for reasons of principle. I thus far have not earned the status of honorable, I am very sorry to say.

from Gail's type to Jane's prose! Wonderful!

just realized that i am a moron - had clearly not had enough coffee that morning - glad the misplaced post sparked the seed of poetry though
