Revising, rewriting, rewinding

10:30 p.m. until much, much later. Sitting on the floor of my bedroom after playing with Alice. I pick up the still-molten manuscript for my book. Jottings and underlinings and markings. Spliting and lifting text. Arrows. Lines. Back shift. Shifting text. Up. Shift down. Revising. Rewriting. Rewinding. The dance is this action of setting text into motion through the movements of pen and the flow of ideas. Alice ran off earlier.
