Word Up: Zadie Smith

“The streets of New York and London are the best shows I know, and nothing pleases me more than watching the people go by, their fascinating or outré or banal or bizarre self-conceptions made visible in fabric.” Zadie Smith, from “A Tale of Two Wardrobes”, British Vogue October 2019 Image: Photograph by Jackie Nickerson for T Magazine Visit: Visit:

Word Up: W. S. Merwin from Once in Spring

A sentence continues after thirty years it wakes in the silence of the same room the words that come to it after the long comma existed all that time wandering in space as points of light travel unseen through ages of which they alone are the measure and arrive at last to tell of something that came to pass before they ever began or meant anything W.

Word Up: Starman

Lyrics by David Bowie

There’s a starman waiting in the sky
He’d like to come and meet us
But he thinks he’d blow our minds
There’s a starman waiting in the sky
He’s told us not to blow it
Cause he knows it’s all worthwhile
