"Perhaps we are here in order to say: house,
bridge, fountain, gate, pitcher, fruit tree, window--
at most: column, tower... But to say them, you must understand
oh to say them more intensely than the Things themselves ever
dreamed of existing."
- Rainer Maria Rilke, from the ninth Duino Elegy

Last night I had a dream about a publisher releasing a book that everyone hated. They hated it so much they showed up in en masse to the editor's office. She defended the book, saying: "When you finish it, you might see a piece of string and know it will wrap perfectly around an apple."

"Maybe I have written to see; to have what I never would have had; so that having would be the privilege not of the hand that takes and encloses, of the gullet, of the gut; but of that hand that points out, of fingers that see, that design, from the tips of the fingers that transcribe by the sweet dictates of vision."
- Helene Cixous, from "Coming to Writing"
