27 October 2006. October sun, warm morning...making copy of the alef-beis from front of old siddur--pale yellow cover with rounded corners--even more rounded now with age. Strip of translucent brown packing tape down the spine, trimmed neatly at top and bottom. The delight--again--of Wallace Berman show--his circle of friends, really--Los Angeles and San Francisco, each with one of Berman's photographs--marvelous--a revelation, really--time as moment and eternity. Jess in sweater, having abandoned Los Alamos. Robert Duncan with notebook and pen--Edmund Teske's face--and his own mysterious photos. All elements coincide, all facts are one...
