Jeff Buckley et al
It's fascinating how circular life can be. When I last wrote about Jeff Buckley, I was working on a short story ("Discord") which was partly inspired by him. I finished that story in September, and spent October working on two more stories which are still in rough draft form. Then in November, I resumed my novel-in-progress ("Eden") as part of NaNoWriMo. On Tuesday afternoon I took a break from work and went to a nearby Starbucks to do some work on the novel. And when I walked in the door, I was thrilled to hear the last minute or so of Buckley's "Hallelujah." I'm still quite obsessed with that magnificent song.
This interesting coincidence is roughly analogous to my "Algren Nickel" experience.
