I RECENTLY READ A QUOTE attributed to Walter Benjamin that said: "There is no difference between a human life and a word." It was used by an author as an introduction to her book. I don't know exactly where the quote came from, as I have not read it in context. But used alone, as it was, it seemed rather immature, something a young and not fully developed mind might say. Looking around my house I can see two human beings, and three cats, and almost a thousand books containing probably a million words. And I clearly see the difference.

My friend Stephen Poleskie has a short story, "Too Early for School," in the June issue of The Criterion an English language journal published in India. The journal is quite interesting with many essays, a few poems, and fewer fiction pieces. The writing for the most part is excellent, and the journal is very well edited. The entire issue is online, so you can check it out and my friend Steve's story at www.the-criterion.com.
