So Flawed and Drunk and Perfect Still. Thank you.

Even now, over four years after my long essay Blue Spark was published, I feel a little shy about it. It’s about love and marriage and trauma and murder and 9/11 and saying goodbye to a friend who’d happened to become famous. When it was published, I privately joked to close friends that I was the sliver in the Venn diagram where 9/11 truther message boards and Elliott Smith truther message boards crossed over. I suppose I have to get less shy about all of this since I’m slowly expanding the essay into a book-length manuscript.

The elegant blog So Flawed and Drunk and Perfect Still devotes itself to Elliott’s art and existence as an artist. I’m grateful to its creators for linking to Blue Spark right at the time that I needed a gentle nudge to get back to my work.
