Chuck Taylor lives in Austin, Texas, where, with his wife Pat Ellis Taylor, he runs Slough Press and Paperbacks Plus bookstore. He writes, “at 38, I’m less and less into soul searching . . . I feel very much a materialist — not in the abstract sense of cars and credit accounts, but in the feeling of the infinite variety of the great spirit’s manifestations in the material world . . . Good old solid pantheism — a much discredited word. Tantra pantheism. No more for me all that abstract, intangible spiritual talk. Let me scratch my dog’s ears and worship. Empty the garbage and worship. Sip a beer in prayer to the hops god. Smoke a joint in honor of the god of plants. Hedonistic pantheism. Jalapeno pepper chant. Belch. Fart.”
