  • 3:34: Beth called. She is in her car driving through the valley into Reno. She begins by telling me she doesn’t have much time to talk, then launches into a discussion about Jungian analysis and the concept of persona. The conversation ends when she announces she is walking into an Office Depot to return a telephone.

    4:52: Brian called. He is on his way back to the farm. His sow gave birth, nine piglets in all. “Two died,” he said “The sow sat on one. I had to kill the other because it came out wrong.”
