We attempt to dwell exactly in that sweet space between the difficult and the impossible.
What is that space like? It is like the combination of control and wildness, responsibility and irresponsibility, tradition and rebellion, pain and fun. We strategize about how to dwell with maximum alertness and freedom in that paradoxical space. Not separate from the strategizing, we read and discuss your stories and novel chapters.
