Lincoln's B-day Hey bud. Japan, eh? I don't think I can make it. Sounds great. Cold here. Cold. Cold. Good season for Bears. Chicago went wild—lots of disappointment to overcome. I am getting excited about going there. haven't yet figured out much about the movie theatre. It is loosing money—the winter kills us. Seen some good films lately—my head is full of thoughts—may write a script. What's happing with the [Larry] Burroughs project?

Japan - I began working with Min Shirota in 1985, who opened a gallery in Tokyo in May, 1986. I advised him on artists, wrote essays for his catalogues/books and made several lecture trips to Japan. "Chicago went wild" (the Bears had won the Super Bowl the year before, but didn't quite make it in 86.) I had begun a biographical book about LIFE photographer Larry Burrows in 1984. I had a literary agent, scads of interviews with surviving writers, editors and friends who knew him in the Vietnam days, did lectures around the country - and eventually couldn't find a publisher. The word (then) was: "People aren't ready to read about Vietnam."
