Is it AIDS?

Is it even AIDS, or maybe something else?

I know a few people on here think AIDS is really fucking cool. What were your thoughts on Spencer Dew's piece this week, Familiar with Disease?

It was great. I love Spencer Dew.

That spot on Leland Ave where the train lowers is right down the block from my house, and I kept picturing the roof of a moving ban getting pulled off for the rest of the day.

In case you keep keep track of things like who directs traffic to your site, I read the story after it was linked in Orange Alert.

Probably AIDS, but it's only the terminal factor that matters for its effects: unreality and the lifting of the burden having a future.

I see a bit of a parallel here between what we remember of the lives that have crossed our paths, changing us forever, and those fragments we try to recall on a daily basis as writers. This is absolutely beautiful in it's complexity, gorgeous with its poetic license(She was the hardening of lake ice with its crackle and groan.), and above all, with its honesty this serves as a prime example of the courage and selflessness every writer should aspire to. I'm in awe of Spencer Dew.
