Daniel Johnston
A quick entry this morning before heading to a meeting, another meeting, sign some documents, bank ... away from writing all morning but things must be taken care of.

We saw an awesome documentary last night, The Devil and Daniel Johnston, about the brilliant songwriter Daniel Johnston and the mental illness that has taken him on a perilous journey as an artist.

If you haven't heard his music, check out Beck's cover of "True Love Will Find You in the End" which is available on iTunes.

Daniel Johnston's site is here

Terry Gross (Fresh Air, on public radio) will talk with Pico Iyer today about His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It will probably be available as a podcast download later.

Before the week ends, I will post my new story (newly revised, that is) "Mackerel Sky."

Hooray for "Mackerel Sky"! What a privilege to have had a sneak peek. Pete read it last night and loved it too.
