Robert Bradley has confined himself to a smallish room in a beach town to think about what he’s done. You can email him for more details.

Describe, if you would be so kind, the your process in approaching the triptych.

    My process was this: the first sentence popped into my head and the rest followed like ducks. The trick was to have a smiling cashier. There’s no story if she doesn’t play along. Then I thought up a title. Then I googled the phrase beatific vision. Then I had a profound understanding of God and Life. Then I combed the story for its salient features. Whatever jumped out at me I either googled or else I strafed my memory and came up with something to say about it.
