IS THE SOCIETAL DRUG TABOO ADDRESSED IN YOUR BOOK? A lot of people I talk to say it's great that I'm working on this and that it needs to be written. There's a piece of the puzzle that's missing otherwise. If you read standard art history of the past 50 years, you could assume that no one even smoked pot. If you look at the art, however, it's inexplicable without drugs. How you talk about it though, whether it's a cause an effect or more of convergence in history... that's what I'm working on.
The more I explore different people's bibliographies. There's an awful lot to read about. It's turned out... you know as a journalist when you're writing something different every few days, it's nice to have a continuous project and see it develop.
