Oh, how we misunderstand: introduction -- The vessel of the eternal present: the early years -- When slow starts to mean something, we crave fast: the once years -- Incredibly slowly our view begins to slide: the Mills College years -- I'm not the same person that I used to be: Perfect lives -- Who could speak if every word had meaning?: Atalanta (Acts of God) -- If you have to ask you can't afford one: Now Eleanor's idea -- One thing follows the next and I just do it: Dust, celestial excursions, concrete, and smaller pieces
