Is there something you’d like to do for me, to me, or with me someday, Reader?
Circumstance and tradition require that I ask, and that you post this same question in your own journal after doing so.

It’s been an odd morning. I started work on Gawain and the Green Knight, but for a variety of reasons I’ve been thinking about the Grail, today. I’ll tackle that one next.
It’s scary. I have 600 lines of a planned poem of 3,150 lines written, and I am beginning to plan out how the rest of the poem will work (My sweet love, , currently has one of the books I’m using to research some of the underlying magical themes; I may wind up buying a second copy of it, and letting her have the one I originally bought). One thing I have to work on is getting the pieces I’ve already done, memorized, so that I can perform the whole thing in sections or as a whole. The performance time for Percival suggests that the whole piece will take about two hours to perform in its entirety. No one will sit still for that; I’ll have to do it in chunks over several nights and days. Hmmm. Or not perform it at all, ever. Hmmm. No, I’m planning it as a spoken word piece, so I have to figure out how to memorize it, or it won’t work.
In other news, I have a reading tonight at the Frantic Rabbit reading in Worcester, MA, at the Spacement, 76 Harding Street, Worcester, MA. It’s at a somewhat complicated location, and mapquest should help.
For those brave enough to dare my directions — The short directions are to take I-90 to Auburn (10a), and get on I-290 north. Get off at the Kelley Square exit, and take a left. On the other side of the bridge is the horror of an intersection called Kelley Square. Go north (take a right) onto Water Street, and go several blocks north until you can take a left. Take another left, and that will put you on Harding Street. Congratulations, you have now found Harding Street; unfortunately, you can’t get to 76 Harding Street from here. Take another left, and another left, until you’re back on Water Street (There are places in Worcester where taking three lefts will NOT put you back on the same street you started on; this is not one of those locations). Continue on Water Street for a short distance until you’re almost under the highway. Take a left. You will curve around a large, old industrial brick building. There is a big abandoned-looking parking lot across the street. The building forms the crosspiece of a ” T ” across the top of Harding Street. This is 76 Harding Street, even though it’s actually at a right angle to the rest of Harding Street. If you arrive about 7:30-7:55pm, there will be a crowd outside smoking. The reading usually starts around 8pm.
I have not decided about going up early to eat dinner in Worcester. Anyone want to meet for dinner, or should I eat this pre-cooked chicken I have here?
