Reading for 1/5

Best wishes in the new year, friends (at least to those abiding by the Gregorian calendar). Next week, we’re going to spend our first 90 min or so discussing two pieces which appeared in Killing King Abacus: “The Persistent Refusal of Paradise” by Penelope Nin and “Freedom” by Albert Libertad. Cory has recorded both of these for her podcast Immediatism. Thanks Cory! The remaining time will go towards a meta-conversation about the reading group itself and how we use our time. Periodically this group has found it worthwhile to take a step back and examine the dynamics of our discussions, so that we can all more intentionally get what we want out of each meeting. So please give some thought to the things you like and don’t like, as well as any ideas you have for experimenting with the forms our circle takes, and don’t be hesitant to share them!

Wishing you all a 2021 filled with much playful mayhem!
