Norman Mailer died yesterday. may he rest in peace. i last saw him while he was being interviewed by Charlie Rose on pbs. he was talking about his most recent book at that time. it was earlier this year. Norman and Charlie then began to talk about his next project, and i remember being struck by Mailer saying that he hopes he lives long enough to finish it. if we are fortunate enough to make it to age 84, i imagine one wonders just how much time remains ... really. ...a long and fruitful life. may we all be blessed in our own ways.
