There had already been some discussion of alan taking over his father's road show so the transition in that regard was pretty smooth in accordance with docs wishes. They didn't pause their performance schedule. They shipped his body to winslow illinois to be interred while they went on for the sacramento contract under al stewardship. The act changed a little bit. So whereas doc had always insisted on fairly conservative plain red swimsuits with the most modest cuts available. No adornment and plane bathrobes al. Let the performers choose their own outfits so sonora and lorena at a different colored suits with some spangles stitched onto them and more glamorous robes embroidered backs. There's a great description where she talks about lorena giving her a robe that she had embroidered with a peacock on the back and how much she loved and it felt like the most glamorous garbage had ever worn they also started traveling by car instead of by train.

"In money. There were some of the discussions she talks about in her book was that they weren't really making that much money because even though they head made these arrangements they spent so much money traveling and getting the horses and all of this equipment moved around the by the time they got to their next destination and their next booking they were almost out of cash sonora also had to learn to just dive herself because sometimes they included trick dives in their shows as well as diving with the horses. There was a lower platform on the tower that was twelve feet up instead of going right from that forty a platform and that was used for both humans and horses to learn their diving in practice and partisan are is training was being taught that she would initially when she started diving. Horses always feel as though the horse was going to somersault forward as it leaned forward on. Its ramp off the diving board but that it was not going to and she needed to resist the urge to react physically to it soon. She was diving with the horses with allen who she called l. As coach she later wrote quote as out. Coached me the odds between me and the hospital seem to get smaller. She kept practicing and soon she was deemed ready for a full height jumped from the forty foot platform. But she didn't train at that height dot. Carver had decided her first. High platform jump would be in front of an audience. Sonora describes going kind of numb as she walked to the tower and started climbing for that jump which was in front of thousands of spectators in durham north carolina but also feeling completely confident at ease when she finally got up there she later wrote of that first high dive quote. I felt his muscles tense. His big body spring out and down and then had an entirely new feeling. It was a wild almost primitive thrill that comes only with complete freedom of contact with the earth. Then i saw the water rushing up at me and the next moment we were in the tank we went in so smoothly that the wetness seem the only proof of landing she also wrote of horses diving in general quote the physical holy sensual pleasure. That comes with a drop from the tower down to the tank is a pleasure totally lacking in psychological or philosophical meaning if the sheer exhilaration of being entirely free of the earth. As well as everything human to me. No other physical sensation can be so acute. So deeply intoxicating sonora started giving multiple shows a day as she was the only rider. The teams split up and took two with the horses onto another bookings they could bring in more money dot carver train. Another young woman to send along with that group. While he in sonora state in durham since lorena was still unable to ride wants lorena was fully healed. She literally got back on. The horse is the sub writer was not as good as al. Doc had hoped the personally incent along that other booking they determine did not really have the nerve to do this job long-term so lorena went to meet up with her brother. At this point sonora was earning one hundred and twenty five dollars a week. During the busy touring season as she was often interviewed and photographed by press. She made sure she would later. Say to not get a big head about it and to remember that they were really there for the act and not for her throughout their time working together. It seems that. Dr ghana sort of taskmaster fatherly role in sonora as life and she was really devoted to him and this was even something that played out in the press. Where sonora was bill de sonora and reporters interviewed her so called father. Dr carver dot. Carver would spin all kinds of tales..

"Watching horse diving for herself sonora decided that she did in fact. Wanna take carver up on his offer but by the time she came to this decision. The carver show is getting ready to leave savannah the following morning. She dressed as quickly as she could. She skipped breakfast and she rushed to the hotel in the hopes of intercepting carver and his company before they left town in in her autobiography she mentioned she could never recall their exact conversation but she knew she did not make clear to them that she wanted to join their show and they kind of had some sort of talk and then they left without her three months later though dot. Carver wrote her a letter. Restating his offer quote if you still want to learn to ride the diving horses reply at this address so she did and then she waited and waited and waited and after several weeks he appeared in person in savannah and asked how soon sonora could leave. She was given a salary of fifty dollars a week and that was more than triple what she had been. Earning as a department store bookkeeper in savannah. Yes she had kind of been making a life for her own. She had moved out of the family house and into a boarding house but this suddenly seemed like riches and get to ride horses So she soon found herself alongside the rest of carver's crew in jacksonville florida. That's where they were spending the winter months prepping for the next season and she saw how they cared for the horses. Dr son allen was in charge of their day to day care and managing the groomers that they hired. Doc's daughter llerena was a trick rider. But she had injured a muscle in her leg and she was not ready to perform again yet. Sonora had to learn how to ride bareback which was entirely new to her and very challenging. It left her bruised all over her legs and when she got smacked by a horse moving its head then got a bloody nose dot. Carver made it clear that she was the.

"And welcome to the podcast. I'm holly fine. And i'm tracy wilson so while researching some other episode recently and i don't even remember what which one There are several. That could have landed me here. I came across. Just a casual mention of sonora webster. Carver and i looked into her briefly. And then i had to resist jumping to work on her story at the time. Because i was already so far along in the other topic that i would have really made my life miserable to change over that late in the game but i was enthralled by her story and a little bit trepidation because it doesn't involve animal trick acts that look very very dangerous. It is The story is mostly heart rate free in that regard. There's there's one thing we'll mention at the end. It was however incredibly dangerous but that was primarily for the writers and what we are talking about today is horse diving which includes horses diving off of platforms again. It looks terrifying We'll talk about that relationship with the animals and their training and whatnot in. We're going to talk about not just horse diving. But probably the most famous horse diver of her time. Certainly possibly all time. And that is sonora webster. Carver but to talk about her we. Actually i have to talk briefly about doc carver to begin with to set the groundwork Because he invented this entertainment Dot carver's story is a roller coaster. He if you've done any reading about like wild west shows you've heard of him. His life was filled with a lot of adventure and a lot of wild tales. Some of which are probably tall but he genuinely did some very very surprising and perhaps bananas things but we're going to give a very brief version of his life here. William frank. carver was born in eighteen. Fifty one and winslow illinois and his childhood is pretty undocumented. The stories that he told about it really contradicted each other even biographies on what year. He was born different. Pretty wildly because doc would sometimes claim to have been born not in eighteen fifty one but in eighteen forty. Yeah there are various reasons for that Probably gave him some credibility early on in his life and he just ran with it and then later on their discussions of of people saying wow you look amazing for your age. And he's like thanks But he was eleven years younger than claiming to be but the important part. Is that as an adult carver. Who got the nickname doc. Because he was trained as a dentist became a skilled sharpshooter and he toured the world in sharpshooting exhibitions and competitions and he made a pretty decent living doing it. He also had a wild west show with buffalo. Bill cody for a time for the two men had a falling out..

Some Black-Owned Businesses Are Turning To New Banks For Paycheck Protection Loans
"To help keep workers on payrolls. Businesses owned by black and Latino people were often at the back of the line. Those firms often had to wait longer for money, even though many were desperate for financial help. With a new round of business loans in the pipeline. Authorities are now trying to address that disparity as NPR's Scott Horsley reports like a lot of business sellers. Jennifer Kelly's income took a hit last year when the pandemic struck. She's a clinical psychologist near Atlanta, and some of her clients didn't make the adjustment to online or telephone counseling. Kelly, who has two employees applied to her regular bank for a loan under the federal government's Paycheck protection program. But she says the process was frustrating. It's kind of like trying to get the vaccine. They put my name on the list. And there they finally said, Oh, we all have anymore, And we're sorry that first round of P P p loans was exhausted In less than two weeks. Lots of businesses complained that banks were prioritizing their biggest customers. Bones were especially hard to come by in neighborhoods with a lot of black and brown residents When I needed them. They were not available to man, including. I'm not the big business, but I'm a small business and committed like with the fabric of America. When Congress okayed a second round of P P p loans last year, Kelly applied again. This time through a bank 250 miles away in Savannah, Georgia that specializes in working with black own firms. They were very patient through that entire process, and I didn't get approved for the loan, and I do hope that, especially in the small black banks will survive because We need to have those institutions that second bank Kelly worked with. Carver State Bank was founded 94 years ago with the goal of building financial freedom for its African American customers. 80% of its loans go to black owned businesses. Robert James, who sits on the bank's board, says he received P P p applications from around the country most looking for less than $50,000. Most of our applications are very small businesses individually owned gas station in the neighborhood or restaurants are people deserve a lot of credit for the hard work that they're putting in just to make sure that we get help to the customers that need it. The most According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Even before the pandemic, black owned businesses were more than twice as likely beyond shaky financial footing as white owned firms. CEO Janine Jake Oak of the Community Development Bankers Association, says that means the extra time it took for loans to reach those businesses could be costly. They had a lot less cushion to start with, which made them much more vulnerable when the economy went south. Authorities have tried to address the disparity in P P p lending in a number of ways. First they've made more money available. They also gave banks that specialize in minority and low income communities, a head start when the latest round of paycheck protection loans was launched last month. Finally, while the loans were designed to be forgiven, some black borrowers are suspicious, a legacy of the long history of discriminatory lending. So education is also important. Carver States, James says he tried to reassure African American borrowers they can use P p p loans to keep their businesses and communities afloat. I've heard a lot of stories of customers who were eligible for these funds, but didn't trust that there wouldn't be some sort of a catch. Craig Gordon runs a company that provides in home nursing care in Georgia about 30% of his business is on hold right now because many of his customers are wary of letting anyone even a skilled nurse into their home during the pandemic. With Carver States help Gordon's just been approved for a second p p. P loan. This will buy us probably three of four months, and I'm hoping that all of those vulnerable folks that we served by again will be well vaccinated. In the meantime, cordon says the forgivable loan will help him keep dozens of people on the payroll. Scott Horsley. NPR NEWS Washington
Hawkeyes can't back up their lofty ranking, suffer humbling loss to Indiana
"Leg. I think we might need to revisit. The word realistic. The definition is as follows. Having were showing a sensible and practical idea of what can be achieved or expected. I bring this up because on wednesdays. Podcast i asked you if you believed indiana had a realistic chance to win at iowa on thursday night you said no. I said no. Just didn't seem like a sensible or practical idea of what can be achieved or expected and for at least three reasons. One iowa is clearly better than indiana in the season to iowa would have the best player on the court. In the form of luca garza an three iowa was inside carver. Hawkeye arena where it inner with a nine and record. Obviously you know what happened next score indiana iowa sixty nine not n- is roy j carver famed industrialists rolling over in his grave. Norlander what was it like for you to watch and unrealistic thing. Become a reality late thursday night. Miriam webster defines the word regret as sorrow aroused by circumstances beyond one's control or power to repair. That game was out of my control. It was out of your control of conduct or an event giving rise to regret undesirable unwelcome. And as that game played out and as it got into the second half. I thought this is interesting. This is look this indiana getting a good win. I was really going to take this loss all right. You know what this is. This'll be something good to talk about on the. Oh wait a second. What did we say at the end of the last podcast. We said too much did we. Did we call it a little too far. Yeah did i have someone tweet at me. A link to the definition of realistic. You bet your ass. I did congrats indiana fans although you might be super conflicted this morning here because obviously you want your team to do well. Obviously a decent portion of you just love basking self loathing when archie miller doesn't performance walls coaches. You'd like you got a good win here. This is the kind of win. That's gonna get you into the ncaa tournament. like i. i think the hoosiers someway somehow they're going to be in that incident tournaments if it's because of a win like this. Are you suggesting that was a cpap win was well. They're not maybe it was. How about a vaulting win. They might not have been in prior to this game. Get the win vaulted. And that's even better than the seat. Bump vault vault launch it right there like a catapult right over great job i indiana i gotta figure this is probably a top five win of the season considering iowa's a top five team in the metrics. It is a game on the road again even though it's not a true true wrote environment. It's still a so. This is one of the five wins and think anyone has had the season and india. It wasn't like the squeaked it out they got it done. They beat an iowa team that i checked late last night. I'll bring up right now. Yes i was still third at ken palm as we report this podcast on friday morning and the win by twelve so a wonderful job. Clearly you know. That's the kind of game if i speak to. The hawk is real quick. And you're right. I actually have in my notes cover. Hawkeye's rolling over in his nest. Not his grave. He's really covering his nest That defense there is obviously problematic for iowa. That's the that's the kind of game. Where whether you're a fan. Or just a bit of a skeptic of the hawkeyes early this is why i don't know if i can take them to get to the final four. I still can get there. It was just a disappointing performance. What you see on on thursday night and what was your primary take away. Okay let me tell you. I experienced this indiana comeback. So obviously we we. We have a new president now and the country has been an interesting place to live in recent weeks and a guy with the high school with who was like a genuinely good guy but we see the in completely different ways In probably every election of our our lives. I've voted one way. And he has voted another and so he reached out to me and he said hey. Listen i i want to try to better understand like i keep hearing people say you know you need to listen to other people and i want to try to understand in an and you can see if you would it. Be okay if i reached out to you every once in a while and say. Hey well what do you think about this. What do you think about that and he. Here's what i think about this. And what am i missing. And i thought it was like a sweet gesture and so i said sure. Of course i'd be happy to talk gone. Eleven biden voters chatty to you like that by the role of the roles are reversed. And i said you know what i of course and anytime you wondering why so. Why does gp think this way. Or why do i think this way. And you want to bounce off of me. And i'm here of course.

Chang-rae Lee Reads Steven Millhauser
"This is the new yorker fiction podcast from the new magazine. I'm deborah tradesman fiction editor at the new yorker each month. We invite a writer to choose a story from the magazine's archives to read and discuss this month. We're going to hear coming soon. By steven millhauser which was published in the new yorker in december of twenty thirteen as levinson stepped onto his front walk. He noticed with surprise. The bezos is house across the street known larger and stretched out on both sides almost the property lines and he turned right and said offer town. You saw house of his neighbors sandler's steph instead of white shingle. All must have happened while he was away. The story was chosen chang relea- who six novel. My year abroad will be published in february high tanqueray. Never thank you for doing this again in a while but the my pleasure the last time you were on the podcast you chose a story by don delillo and this time steven millhauser and i feel so both of those writers. It's not that there is similar in style but they both tend to have a sort of conceptual nugget that they build the fiction around. I wonder if you agree with that. And if that's something that attracts you fiction. Yeah absolutely are particularly with steven millhauser. you know. maybe because he's written so many short stories and and conceptually. I think short stories Not that novels. Don't do this the short story because of its necessity for compression for certain kind of you know angled engagement. As conception of either in language or inform or in usually imagine all those things it's advantaged by The form of the short story of and with house particularly his stories to me to have a certain kind of quiet acceleration to them. Which which i really love fiction In in certain fund ways it reminds may desert stories of carver's though. They're quite different. Stephen no houser stories. Always have this wonderful bonding between character. Language setting which all stories should have but with the millhauser stories. They're quite explicit. And i love the compaction. So this one has one character. One setting and certainly has a velocity to it. Do you think it's characteristic of what we'll have to dance. While it's it doesn't feel immediately fast. I mean what's what's great about. This story coming soon is that it really takes time with so many wonderful meaningful and memorable details. The first the first half of the story is really setting up the landscape but the sense of it is that of course we need all these details to feel that we the context of it and this is something i think millhauser specialty which is his interest in place and particularly certain kinds of town. And here. it's all about the creature leanness of this place. The shops the houses the streets and of course all the work going on all the edifice making in. And that's something. I think that millhauser houses been interested in throughout his career and literally architecture but of course that architecture begins to melt over into into how he builds his story into into perception. Yeah it's he. He's building the architecture of this story. Well the story is about construction. So i think we should probably just hear it And then we can talk some more so now. Here's chang rae. Lee reading coming soon by steven millhauser coming soon. One saturday afternoon in summer levinson self proclaimed refugee from the big city sat at his favourite sidewalk cafe on main street sipping nice cappuccino and admiring the view you felt without vanity the satisfaction of a man who knows he has made the right choice. This was no boring backwater as his friend had warned now. Cute little village with one white steeple into red gas pumps but a lively threatening town women and smart dresses broad brimmed straw hats. Saturday passed within reach of his arm over the cafe railing. He watched husbands baseball caps pushing baby. Carriages with one hand leading dogs with the other wives in oversized sunglasses grip. The handles of bright coloured shopping bags stuffed with blouses and bargain jeans.

"Top ten capsule wardrobe struggles and solutions by gordon cover of be more less dot com taking on a challenge like project. Three thirty three can seem daunting and a little bit scary. My experience has been so transformative and the stories. I hear from other participants inspire me to make it approachable for more. People are recently. Joined my friends ryan joshua on their everything that remains one hundred city book tour and josh mentioned that he can usually tell who was doing project three thirty three because they were the best dressed people in the room. If you have a chance to attend one of their events i highly recommend it and mission is free and so are the hugs number one taking the first step getting started as always the hardest part. The process seems overwhelming. The best way to start is to set a date with your closet block off day or even a few hours to turn all of your focus to what's behind those doors make it fun bring music and snacks and dig in. Starting something new makes starting next thing even easier. Consider it a practice that will help you jump in sooner the next time you are considering something new number to my body's changing you might be worried that if you lose or gain weight more of your body shape changes than the items. You chose more work anymore. That might be true but keep in mind that project. Three thirty three is a three month project. Some pieces you choose will still work regardless of the amount of change that would typically happen in three months losing or gaining weight with a smaller wardrobe can also be a great benefit. She need to replace items. How these you don't need a replenish stuffed closet full of pieces that you weren't wearing anyway number three. I like shopping shopping. Fun for some and there be for others but when you look at the big picture there are better ways to get everything you need. If you participate in project three thirty three you remove yourself from shopping for three months stop. Permanent is three months to give you the time and space you need to assess your shopping habits and see if they add value to your life or distract you from things that matter more to you number four. I don't know my personal style and what looks best on me when you trends and work with a massive wardrobe. There's too much going on to develop personal style. How can you possibly know what looks good on you when you are always trying to wear something different or find something new. I highly recommend not identifying personal style for the first round of project. three thirty. Three us what you have. Don't worry about what that says about you. By the end of three months of dressing with less everything will change. You will change how you think about the clothing you boxed up and set aside you will change you. Think about the way you look in certain items. And you'll have a new sense of clarity way for that before making new purchases or defining a personal style number five. I don't love or even like what i have. You might not be crazy about your current wardrobe and may even feel ambivalent while going through the sorting process. Work with what you have and reassess after three months. Turn your focus away from what you are wearing and towards discovering what you're missing. We were spending extra time trying on multiple outfits to get ready. You need time away from choosing seeking discover what you really want number six letting go. You don't have to give anything away but this is a process of letting go for at least three months. You have to let go of your skinny clothes like oh of massive closet variety you were wearing those other things anyway and let go the idea that your clothing defined you then let go. The fear of not having enough extra clothing will be stored away out of sight for three months. If you don't have enough you can bring a back similar to getting started letting go gets easier with practice as you practice. You'll begin to understand why it's so hard for you to let go. And once he know that nothing can hold you back number seven. I'll be bored. You worry that you have to dress in one neutral color do you typically lean towards black with greens and teals but there are plenty of options out there. Check out the project. Three thirty three pinterest board for examples of colorful capsule wardrobes. That said i do rickman keeping your first round as simple as possible. You will learn so much number eight. the weather. Your seasons may not be a consistent temperature for three months. Luckily it created this project to handle a variety of changing weather my first season included temps ranging from zero to ninety degrees and with the exception of summer after include clothing and my collection that can handle both high and low. Temps be a few pieces that you can only wear the beginning or end of each season and thirty three. We'll be enough number. Nine special occasion items. Usually one special occasion outfit is plenty for one season of project. Three thirty three years several events coming. And don't wanna wear the same thing to each set aside a small capsule of three or four special occasion pieces and then you'll have them if you need them

Havent I been here before
"Welcome to kiss myths and mystery. Siamese your host kit crumb. I've got to mention that if you're hearing a little background noise there's nothing wrong with your computing device or however you're listening to this podcast is my neighbor dominate away. Who's drilling well while that said. Today's topic is a deja vu. When you go to a new place me someone that you've never met before and had the feeling that you knew that person or to that place. Well you're not alone. But i deviate a little bit when i was researching this story a french carver. Not a real name said. She grew up in las vegas but eventually moved to shasta city california. She told me it wasn't uncommon for her to have the name of a friend that she grew up with pop into her head. And within minutes would run into that person at shasta. Although janice experiences nada deja vu. I felt it was in the same league and i just couldn't help explain it to my listeners. Okay onward we go. Wikipedia says deja vu feeling that one has lived through the present situation before the phrase translates literally as already seen although some interpret deja vu in a paranormal context mainstream science approaches reject of dacia who is pre cognition or prophecy. So how does science explain deja-vu they the world of science has four possible causes of what is referred to as vu. First attention explanations of deja vu involve an initial perception that is made under degraded attention which is then followed by a second. Take under full attention for example. If you're about to unlock the front door of your house and you momentarily are distracted by a noise in the distance when you return to the task locking the door the first perception may seem further off in the past the distraction that separates these two perceptions could be est fleeting. I said i blink. Their second explanation is memory explanations. They make the assumption that some detail of the do experiences familiar but the source of this familiarity has been forgotten. The premise of this explanation is that people encounter countless things during the course of the day. But don't pay attention to all of the information later. Processing of information may occasionally induce. The million era at deja vu. Then there is the next explanation dual processing explanation so vu suggested to usually synchronous cognitive processes become momentarily as synchronous for example familiarity and retrieval could become out of sync alternate league perception and memory could become a synchronous and finally neurological explanations for deja vu attributed the phenomenon to either a small temporal lobe seizure in a person without epilepsy to a delay in neural transmission between the eyes ears or other perceptual organs in higher order processing centers in the brain. Wow do processing. Explanations have received a lot of attention. They are much more philosophical and theoretical and less mechanistic but do processing explanations can be tested in the lab. Similarly neurological explanations are appealing in their neurological basis and seem logical but again we lack the advanced technology to test them. Thus dual processing explanations are less germane to researchers instead attentional memory explanations are best supported by what we know about cognition and could be tested vertically. Well it sounds to me like the scientific explanations can't be tested and repeated in a generally scientific method. Wow that takes the fun out of experiencing deja vu on monday. I'll provide explanations for deja vu from a pseudoscience or paranormal point of view. And we'll see what stands out

Joy Williams and Unique Views of America
"Scott joins us now to talk about the latest in his series of essays. The americans tony. Thanks for being here. It's great to be here this time around you write about joy williams for those who are not familiar with her work. Who is joy. Williams joy williams is an american novelist and short story writer. She's still alive. She's in her seventies. She started publishing in the nineteen seventies. Her first novel was state of grace and she had kind of a loyal cult following in a profile of for a few years ago in the new york times magazine dan choice referred to her as a writers writers writer. I was going to bring that up. Which i think is a great phrase because she has a very passionate for. If you look at paperback editions of books you see a collection of big names. Don delillo herald broad key james. Salter all crazing. Her one of the things i discovered and actually wrote about in this as as that. She's a very difficult writer to pigeonhole or to classify. And i came into this piece to doing the reading for its thinking of her one way based on the reading that i'd done some for earlier novels stories and ended up with a different idea of her. I started out thinking of her. As kind of a realist. Almost in the in the sort of raymond carver or and beatty vein very close grain finally detailed reticent realism and ended up thinking of her something almost completely different sort of a fabulous surrealist magical or which he kind of writer okay. I'm gonna ask you all kinds of questions that i think. You don't wanna be asked to try to pin her down. There's a lot in here. I want to actually go first back to that original freeze you used writers writer but actually we'll just simplify it to a writer's writer because i think that is the kind of phrase that people use that to people who are writers baby mean something but that is kind of mysterious to non writers. What do we mean when we use that phrase. I've never really understood the phrase or particularly. Oh my god. And i think what it means. Is that if you think that writers read differently from the rest of us and our maybe more attuned to certain matters of craft and technique that the rest of us rush over. Let's say you know this is a caricature but most people we read for the plot we read for the characters we read for the emotions and maybe writers are looking at something different. They're looking at the brush strokes so to speak at the sentences at the rhythm on the sentence sentence level and i'm not sure that's true but it is true that within any profession there are people you know it's true of standup comedians or actors or filmmakers that there are some who have a special kind of respect from their peers that may be disproportionate to their renown or popularity or fame or a claim out in the world joy williams has won and been nominated for all the major awards and she's very well reviewed in her books stay in print so she has certainly a loyal readership. That isn't just writers. But i think there's something special about her and i think it has to do with her resistance to classification in a way that she's she's writing sentences at stories and characters and plots that are so unusual and that seem to result from kind of total inventiveness. I feel like having read just about all of the fictional msci's published in the last few months. I could say that. I feel like there's a kind of attention to words and sentences and developments within the story and the plot that keep you on the edge of your seat and at the edge of your attention throughout there are writers where you can kind of let your mind wander a little bit and coast a little bit in the okay. I know this passage of description is going to tell me something about the house. This okay these people are having this conversation now and and you could sort of skate already. Can't do that in a joy store. You have to be paying attention every moment because the terms of the fiction what the characters are thinking and feeling how they're relating to each other what is going to happen in the language from one sentence to the next whether it's going to be sad or mysterious or funny is going to change so you just have to keep your eyes on the road at your hand on the wheel the whole time
"carver" Discussed on Charlotte Readers Podcast
"That Mark wrote and just a lot of the names there and I had been fortunate to have a number of those on the on the podcast. So it what do you think I mean is it in the water? What happened I mean? How do we get headed? We start evolving. What people say is that for a long time Chapel Hill was turning out. All the novelist because of the rining of the air. But now we have writing programs other places too, and and Charlotte just happens to be a place for that's attractive for people to move to May we have moved from being. Now a small town, but a medium sized city to being a huge city. So it attracts more people. That's true. That's true. So okay. Well, let's talk about for a minute the opening poem in the Sun Room with Raven carver. You have this sort of spiritual conversation with the man and Before we talk about the poem I, like to talk about Raymond Carver and what drew you to his writing. But I particularly love his short stories and he was a recovering alcoholic and he did recover any writes a lot about Being an alcoholic I've always found fascinating even if he didn't write about that, I. Liked the style of his writings. So he's always been a favorite of mine. And A friend loan me a book about him is actually well. With photos just fell in love with the book. And in the book, He talks about his daughter who was an alcoholic is. Whatever she is. A way that point just rumbled up in me because I was. Dealing also with us on. Who was having a lot of trouble with addiction? He is now sober I'm happy to say. That's great. So I was looking up Raymond Carver You know he he was putting out. You know his books and was being popular when I was. Focused more sports in high school and. Not much. Literature that but. It's he says, he's sort of American short story writer and poet but whose focus was on brevity a bit and I guess so that that ties in Wilda poetry trying to get to the to the point I suppose well, he also writes poetry is just that I. Like his short stories is short stories what drew me doing okay, right. Let's talk a little bit the poem itself here You reveal to Raymond carver and to the reader some deep pain that you're having about your own son is an alcoholic and. You just talked about how he had a daughter is now calling himself also struggled with with alcohol he drank heavily and and you asked him. Just question the poem You know how he grabbed at happiness and I was just. Curious How you grabbed happiness over the years that you were struggling with this concern for your own child. Well I think you can be happy and still have an anchor on your heart. Days would go by when I didn't consciously think about being in pain but I was always in pain is just part of it is just what you live with and you get used to it and you don't get used to. now that he so were. One day at a time and I have to always remember it is one day at a time. I. Can let go of some of that pain. You said he's I believe he's around fifty two years old and he's been sober year and a half you told me and a little more than a year and a half now. Yeah. Great how long were you was struggling and you struggling with this sandy was sixteen. Well so that the Period of sobriety before. but I used to ask people in AA. Who Do you know who got sober in this age and that age and a lot of people said, you know it took me while I was fifty took me till I was fifty three. Best just folklore but I've I've known people who've gotten so. Thirty years ago never took another drank. That's that seems to be unusual, but it happens. When did you write this poem? It not that long ago actually I think less than two years ago maybe about eighteen months ago. Maybe not even that long ago. Interesting to me how course. Ramming carve you talked about the fact that he was fifty when he died and now your son is fifty two and. You're older and so he has been a while since he's been writing, of course and. Yet. That memory that tied him kind of. percolate as you're thinking about this, how did how did you make that connection? Well I'm used to interviewing riders and a lot of people have said to me in fact, my son said to me my gosh, mom did you actually get to interview Raymond carver with he really in our sunroom will? No, he wasn't. But the situation felt very. To me to be asking him that and. I guess that's the question that I've asked people for years and years. How do you maintain your own happiness when something is? Deeply hurting you. And it's It's not answerable. Really. Accepted moments. I. Mean I think? win I don't fish but I my father did and I understand the bliss that comes from fishing and and I also. Understand the bliss that comes from writing. And anytime, I was rioting and never was in pain. And that's a great point My Dad loved fishing He would go out and vote and fish. Where the call anything or not not took up fly fishing a few years ago and really joined the peace and solitude being in the river and those two things you're right for me Dan. Let's do writing and being in a river. Inlet and hearing the water you know whatever troubles you took into that space. You leave behind. That's exactly right. Matter of fact, I was reading an essay by the poet, Louise? Glick the other day and she said what Horwitz Miss, when they're not riding is that deep concentration that you feel when you're trying to make a polling work she said that's what we hanker after not publication. As not getting a book out but we we long for that time we're back into that deep concentration because it wants out everything else. and. It's just so pleasurable. I do find that when I'm at my computer riding and focused on. What I'm doing So good. Still, my car, the driveway. And the same thing is true with fly fishing It's a complicated it's more complicated than you think you're focused on. Okay. Where should where's the fish which what are they eating? What's the river doing what where shall be standing all these statue you're focused on that's interesting I. We won't. We won't spend all.
