Jeremy Fernando sends us ~

Why write on a collective—a coming together—that foregrounds the difficulty, the impossibility, of knowing? A cooperative that openly admits that it knows not, cannot know of, what it does?
Because they are my friends;
accepting all accusations of biasness. There is no reason, no grund, for friendship. One is or one isn’t.
I choose to be. This is my position.
Not that it comes without risk. 
For, as Jacques Derrida warns us, “to have a friend, to look at him, to follow him with your eyes, to admire him in friendship, is to know in a more intense way, already injured, always insistent, and more and more unforgettable, that one of the two of you will inevitably see the other die.”
To write. To scribble. Scribere. To tear.

Which can also bring one to tears.
