QuotationI am still reading Faulkner. Nothing impresses me as much as The Bear. I suppose I need to get Light in August. Perhaps write on The Bear and Requiem for a Nun - "Faulkner's Saints." My "Day of a Stranger" is accepted by The Hudson Review - for next summer.6 That news came in on the 25th anniversary of my entrance into the community. Re-read the ms. and it is OK. It comes close to being real. Still questions about "Edifying Cables." The typed ms finally got back from Eileen Curns but I have more to do. Maybe the writing is worth while - or let me say - maybe it goes in the right direction.
