Among the less-than surprising bits yesterday: the news that the documentary film venture’s funding had been cut in half (down to one thousand euro) while a one-shot Festival of  – ready?- Rugby Films will receive a friendly handout of five thousand, over and above the forty-five thousand to the rugby team. As for Les Amis de l’Orgue receiving four thousand and a dance festival having to fold because further funding was denied, what can I say? If funding worked on a merit system, the news would get around.

Latest news, job-wise: to the best of my understanding, the past week involved culling and firing of some people. The upcoming week devoted to interviewing, selecting and, possibly, hiring others. In other words, by mid-June, I should know whether I’ll visit apartments in this town or in the other one.

Did a line-by-line third or fourth reading of Julian Barnes’ Levels of Life  at the library, plus a first read through a book recommended by the owner of an independent bookstore (“Bookstores, a town with bookstores.” Yes, be still my foolish heart). The book by Antonio Moresco, titled La petite lumière in French, turns out to be a ghost story set in an earthquake-prone mountain area in Italy. A first read something like a first listen to an unexpected piece of music. Ghost story or not, I know I’ll read La petite lumière again.

Word by word, line by line. what else is new? The day. Never lived this one before.
