anne carson: cage and shades.

Readers, what is your spin as to why Anne Cason is referring to John Cage?
It could be a take on either the topic, “shade” and/or the title to her poem, “each day unexpected salvation (John Cage)”?

I will also directly ask her.

Here is a response from Lynne Jones
“Maybe that's like her poem: Ordinary walk - exploration of 'conceptual, imagined and real shade' blended in time with other chance encounters. Melding arising thoughts, emotions, references to a steady word: shade. Paying attention to the moment. I know Cage was very interested in eastern ideas. Seemingly more so, than western ideas of drawing order out of chaos.”

future plans: i'm inspired to illustrate the entire litany of Anne Carson's multifaceted allusions to “shade“.
