Very nice,
that makes me happy just to think about.
Always blows my mind when favorite artists
come together like that, seemingly out of the blue.
Not random of course, just folks on the same tree.
Very comforting to see one is not alone.
WG Sebald, what an amazing author.
Right up there with Roberto Calasso for me.
