Charissa Glidden: most often in India, often in New York City, New Hampshire and Scotland. When I write, I am the spirit bead in your ceremonial necklace, the flaw where exaltation enters. I am an entelechtual. I am vital to your fulfilment. I am actuality not potentiality: I am stochastic resonance, the errant bead to ideas and serendipities you would otherwise be insulated from. I am Eros from Chaos. When I do not write, I am just a variety of untidy. I am the tangle in your hair only, the snarl that remains.
