having a post-exotic time. wish you were here.

[There’s an explanation of this at the “life world” blog.]

Dear Professor Jennifer, 

If you’ll allow—because the parts of your work I’ve read address me very personally. The ecstatic quotidian is a poet’s ethic, therefore a luscious book title (and philosophical aesthetic). 

Yesterday, I finished reading the “Introduction” of Exotic Spaces, all of your “Conclusion” sections to each of the 5 main chapters, and your final chapter, “Conclusion,” (which your editor should have bolded in the Table of Contents, like the “Introduction” and other chapter titles are bolded. Anyway...).
