these sites are similar, related, tines of each other; not all information is shared
and information is configured differently —in both Limited Fork neighborhoods:

there's lots to fork around with!


including now (22 September 2010) a video for ONE WORD book (forthcoming from Sarabande) featuring forked text written by Thylias Moss from her sixpack essay in One Word

Hello to my Toledo Friends!  Let us bifurcate together and dine on wonderful ideas; we will bifurcate above and below ground, rather like trees, anchored with roots that cling and spread in soil while our branches spread even between dimensions, temporarily connecting them -–I don’t think that any connection is or can be permanent; that is one reason that we must eat again and again (ideally stopping when we feel full, even though the feeling of fullness is temporary).  

         We will hunger again.  Everyday.  Probably several times a day.

Please think, if you don’t mind, for a moment of ceiba trees, or of any tree you have liked –-forgive me, please, for assuming that there is a tree you’ve liked.  If you dislike trees, this may not be a post for you, but I leave here a small interest in trees, a small interest that may become something else. 

Each tine of a limited fork also functions as a root and/or a branch and may curve, circle, disappear for a while, temporarily connecting things, possibly even snagging something tasty, something possibly nourishing, something that can be ingested –-maybe without harm(ing us), but what is ingested will change during this process, and we may change, so the temporary connections is also a means of exchange: we give something and we receive something;  we may not realize immediately that we are different, but we are.

The featured image is of my paternal grandfather, Frizzell (never sure how to spell his name, one “z”,or two, one “l” or ‘two”?)   a most interesting and confusing background, Native American, Caucasian, and Indian from India —

My joy at the moment is because a real man who meets my father in the book, informed me that he has received it and he calls it “a good one”shouldn’t make me as happy as it does.    Let’s just say as things fall apart as they do, he and I have something, and I do no always know exactly what it is, but if he says it’s a good one, then I can’t help but glow.  

It is a good one but for more than he may think… if I didn’t already care about him, this would be reason to.  Now I will just lean back in the joy of this accomplishment.  

I am so glad that these men meet, and that they like each other.  He has no way of knowing what this means to me.  

I have been thinking about that arrow of time a little bit, and well, wondering if I can cause that arrow to move differently, and if I had that opportunity, what would I do?  

Wondering how I would make that arrow move?  These men would indeed meet, and I believe that my son would be joyous… Well the first (and only, I say sadly) time my son saw me with this man, he said, “It’s the first time I’ve ever seen you happy with a man.” I had been married for forty years when he sad that, not the son of my ex-husbands, but with a sperm donor father of necessity.

Well I will not post his picture,that got much too far, but at least I know he likes it, and knowing that is everything right now.

My Father:

 

I will rest with this interlude of joy.

Calvin Theodore Brasier

My father

I share only the beginning of this manuscript:

Silence of the Lambs” is one of my favorite movies; I like Jodie Foster, as Clarice, outstanding performance, and Anthony Hopkins as the serial killer Hannibal Lector, pure genius, and I am curious about impulses to kill, that loss of control, seems to me, that devaluing of human life, such intellectual murderers do interest me, that complexity of the mind, so smart, genius actually, and yet, killer instincts emerge; in all of us carnivores but controlled, animals killed (ideally humanely) , slaughtered, butchered and for sale in neat styrofoam packages under shrink wrap, or if purchased fresh —(fresh meat—collegiate or not) just wrapped in butcher paper, but her film “Contact” even better, for few understand how important my father is to me, but Foster’s character Ellie Arroway fully comprehends; we are as sisters concerning relationships with our fathers; his death will always bother me, although it happened in 1980.”

I am just glad to have a draft done.  My father is one of the most important men in my life; my manuscript involves a few other living persons, and I have sent a copy to those involved; hoping that they won’t mind  inclusion. Hoping they will understand how important this book is to me.  

Especially Mr. Muse.  I pray that he understands. Everything.

Here is one of the impactful “Contact “scenes:

this is all for now.  It exists. And I am very glad indeed.

My Father and I

He even created my first name for me. Details are in the book.

I am quite aware of just how lucky I am.

A book about my paternal heritages is well underway.  

A book I have needed to write for many, many years.  A book that is rvign to be the most difficult book U have ever tried to write because of how important it is to m, and that importance is interfering with my ability to write.

No secret that I miss him, and I am forgetting the sound of his voice.  

I can see for myself that he was considered a catch, and my mother caught him, little southern vixen with the semi bowed legs, who played basketball and didn’t get that far in school, but with a man like that, what else could she need?  

 

Children guaranteed to be beautiful, catches themselves; exactly what she needed for beng ostracized as “The Little Black One”  Too bad she got caught up in a need for bleaching creams, making her skin leathery.  

 

My father’s father was an immigrant I never met, Native American, Caucasian, and Indian from India, “Uttar Pradesh” born in 1882,  died in 1939. A builder of railroads in the south, and a farmer. 

Frizzell Brasier, father of Calvin Brasier, a farmer

 

Finally my father in his favorite kitchen chair; he was already so sick… Barrel-chested, soon to die.
