In Lost Letter, Allen Ginsberg Tells The Paris Review He Tried LSD Again & Experienced “No Snake Universe Hallucinations” (1966)
Lost Letters, Allen Ginsberg, A Letters, Ginsberg Letters, The Readers, Paris Review, 1966 Letters
Allen Ginsberg letter to The Paris Review, June, 1966 re LSD, Psylocibin [sic], etc. To readers of Paris Review: Between occasion of interview with Thomas Clark June ’65 and publication May ’66 more reassurance came. I tried small doses of LSD twice in secluded tree and ocean cliff haven at Big Sur. No monster vibration, no snake universe hallucinations. Many tiny jeweled violet flowers along the path of a living brook that looked like Blake’s illustration for a canal in grassy Eden: huge Pacific watery shore, Orlovsky dancing naked like Shiva long-haired before giant green waves, titanic cliffs that Wordsworth mentioned in his own Sublime, great yellow sun veiled with mist hanging over the planet’s oceanic horizon. No harm. President Johnson that day went into the Valley of Shadow operating room because of his gall bladder & Berkley’s Vietnam Day Committee was preparing anxious manifestoes for our march toward Oakland police and Hell’s Angels. Realizing that more vile words from me would send out physical vibrations into the atmosphere that might curse poor Johnson’s flesh and further unbalance his soul, I knelt on the sand surrounded by masses of green bulb-headed Kelp vegetable-snake undersea beings washed up by last night’s tempest, and prayed for the President’s tranquil health. Since there has been so much legislative mis-comprehension of the LSD boon I regret that my unedited ambivalence in Thomas Clark’s tape transcript interview was published wanting this footnote. Your obedient servant [signed] Allen Ginsberg, aetat 40

You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you odd.” Flannery O’Connor. "As Joyce Carol Oates once said, O'Connor had less in common with Faulkner than with Kafka and Kierkegaard. She created works of moral fiction that, according to Oates, 'were not refined New Yorker stories of the era in which nothing happens except inside the characters’ minds, but stories in which something happens of irreversible magnitude, often death by violent means.'” (click thru to link to her reading. rw)

Flannery O' Connor - Milledgeville
Author Flannery O’Connor was born today 3-25 in 1925. She is well known for her Southern Gothic works. She passed in 1964
One of the South's great authors (of which there are many). Master of the short story. If you want to understand the world we live in today, I heartily recommend "A Good Man is Hard to Find". She saw modern headlines about 5 decades before they became mainstream. A good collection: http://www.amazon.com/The-Complete-Stories-Flannery-OConnor/dp/0374515360 Also, the collection of her letters is well worth picking up. It's called "A Habit of Being."

Novelist Caleb Pirtle III wonders if Flannery O'Connor write realism, or was it merely grotesque? She was the enfant terrible of Southern Writers.

The common conception of New Year’s resolutions frames them as disposable ideals, not to be taken too seriously or followed through past the first few months of winter; by spring, we all assume, we’ll be right back to our slothful, gluttonous ways.
