Diner Journal, No. 21 : Eggs and Failure


Summer 2012

“Risk is the only way anything happens around here . . . The relentless but ineffective alarm clock echoing into the thunderdome or our dreams, plants that refuse to fruit, edits never made, the unpossessed performance . . . the fear or frying an egg, seasoning the pasta, browning the meat . . . We have to allow the fear to activate us.” (Excerpt p.5)
