Update 1

"Back in my garage with my bullshit detector;
Carbon monoxide making sure it's effective" - Joe Strummer, _The Clash_ , "Garageland"

Steve Almond says something in a lecture on the Tin House podcast about what we should write.

To that end,  I haven't spoken to Andy Deckert but once briefly on the street in the last dozen years. I'm not very good about reaching into the past and Andy while critically influential is most certainly from the very distant past. He encouraged me to write a play once (properly, collaborated on the thing): _Overberry_.

Something happened years ago for which I was forced to use Andy as an unwitting intermediary.

I'll have to put that embarrassment, angst, prescience, and resignation into a story. I can physically taste the emotion of those events even now.

That's what I should write about. It is what I will write next.
