  preface: being of the play

  Getting beyond prefacing can be difficult in principle, in the folkish sense that “today is the first day of the rest of your life.”

I recall Derrida’s issue of The Preface, such that everything becomes preface to prefacing The Preface; and Heidegger avowed late in life that he was merely
a precursor.

  As if no earlier beginning had been fashioned, this is the beginning I always was:
opening each day in its own presence, being in a presence of ultimate Opening.

  In May, I improvised a sense of beginning that I uploaded, then didn’t read again. After months of my normal offline eccentricity, I sought to write some postings that would genuinely address a reader who has no idea why I do this site (part 1). Then I improvised a little from that (parts 2—7). But when I was ready to combine the seven December postings into a singular beginning for Cycle 4 of this site, I realized that what I wrote in May was already thematically beyond what I’d just written. So, this set of eight excursions (some very short, none much longer than
a normal-sized page) is followed by what was done in May, still prefaced by the short opening of last February.

Aren’t you glad to know.
