Apparently, you don't need to date entries to a blog -- it puts the date when you post it. This is just the kind of automatic engagement with time I think Delillo would appreciate. I don't need to say what time it is -- the time knows. What is my purpose, anyway? If I am not needed as even a recorder of the time, what am I here for?
Perhaps I am here to observe. Perhaps that is what WND is all about -- observation. Listening. Listening to that which is ordinarily ignored. Listening to the white noise.
Eh, I don't know. I doubt it. Maybe WND is here to remind us that every day is WND, just like, when little kids say, "Why is there Mother's Day and Father's Day but no Children's Day?" the adults are trained to say, "Every day is Children's Day."
When I was a little girl there was a television show called "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" and it had a day called "Do As You Please Day." I wanted one.
Maybe WND is Do As You Please Day.
I doubt it.
