(dis)comfort zones



Not unfitting, but very cheering, that as I languished in the very uncomfortable zone of my bed this week, sick with a quite horrendous virus (getting better, thanks - sheesh, what was that?), one of my November daily photos was republished in this latest issue of the online BluePrintReview, alongside an unsettling short story which I love, featuring coffee and London, but set in some other site of urban disquiet.

This small and perfectly formed publication is edited by Dorothee Lang, whose work and aesthetic as visual artist, writer and editor delight me. It's a pin-sharp patchwork of pieces from all over the place, put together in ways that are clever, allusive and full of strange and unexpected clarities. I'm so pleased to be part of it. Do have a look around the Review and her other work - I especially like her online visual art, some of which has also appeared on Qarrtsiluni.

Congratulations, much deserved. I enjoyed the story, and the Blueprint Review is a very tempting browse. I also appreciated looking at those November photos together in the album.

Such a cool photo. Congratulations.

That's great that they used your photo (nice shot, the coffee cup and the subway sort of at odds with each other, suggesting different things). And I also enjoyed the story and looking at your November Daily Photos.

Very nice, Jean! Congratulations! I remember that photo - you did some wonderful ones that month. And I liked the story, too.

Hope you're feeling better.
