A June 2, 1966 letter from Allen Ginsberg to the readers of The Paris Review
"A letter from Allen Ginsberg to the readers of “The Paris Review” recently resurfaced in our archives. May the record hereafter reflect Allen Ginsberg’s unequivocal endorsement of lysergic acid diethylamide."
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)

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.
