The Metonymical Pen will be on a brief hiatus while the author spends time at an important eleven day residency in Port Townsend, Washington. Until then, enjoy this Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto classic.
I have taken up several professions in the pursuit of passion-and bread for my family-the knowledge through such sources gained will fill out the pages of this blog: I have worked by hand and brain, fixed and cleaned, cooked and carried, painted, written, and taught. My time is increasingly devoted to the unification of my collection of professions into a single creative aesthetic. My pen is a metonymical point, a stand-in fulcrum around which the associative qualities of my life are geared.
