I've been reading, Begin Again: A Biography of John Cage, by Kenneth Silverman. What a man, constantly striving to allow what is, through his music, writing, and being. I met John Cage twice; he was truly a gentle man, making himself available to someone like me, once only because I asked.
He worked extensively with creating mesostics, a form of poetry, usually drawing from the works of others. Over the years I have played with this idea, sometimes using Cage's writing, sometimes others. Recently, I've been playing with mesostics and the twitter stream. Today I used John Cage to "write through" the blog this month. This was what I found. I took one line or word from post beginning with What Get's Caught in the Web? and then moved to the next post for the next line.
