I’m working on Give Me. It’s fun. It’s light – despite the fact that it’s about obsession and murder and desire and all those underbelly bits of a dark fairytale.

But I was thinking about Durga this morning, and she won’t let me go. I’ve been seeing a scene with her and the Empani playing chess on the new balcony of her suite at the top of the admin building. They’re discussing the nature of naming, what it does to an Empani to take a name, how it shapes a counselor not having one.

I can’t think about the Apocalyptos right now!
