Oblivio Speaks

“I’ve decided to write something new on Oblivio every day for the next 100 days.

This is probably a stupid idea, another in a series of self-made prisons, but stupid or not, it’s still an idea—something I haven’t had, or haven’t bother to have, in some time.

I do have a few stories to tell. For example I’m working on a series called Girls I Never Kissed. This should keep me busy for a while, given the number of girls who qualify.

How many is that? Several billion.”

–Michael Barrish

I’m among them. And Michael Barrish, who writes Oblivio, is in the top ten of my several billion reasons to miss Brooklyn. It was Michael I called whenever I took a notion to make _coq au vin_ or plum cobbler on a Monday night. While I chopped and stirred and basted, he told me everything I needed to know about New York City mating habits.

Michael Barrish believes that the universe is made of stories, not atoms. I’m glad he’s writing again.

  1. Michael is more reckless and more open than I will ever be.

    Count yourselves lucky to be spared gruesome breakup stories here. It’s not as if they’re in short supply. 😉
