Innately, the female knows how to cripple by sickening a man with guilt. It is a very special destruct, and she sends her curse to make a fellow impotent. As if she says, 'Unless I allow it, you will never more be a man.'

Dr Tamkin in Saul Bellow's Seize the Day.

I should write again

I should write again. I feel I really should do.

Write. Something else. Not briefs or speeches or recruitment ads.


What then should I write about?

I feel like Christian who's moved to bohemian Montmartre to live a penniless existence as a writer, who believes in all that is important - beauty, freedom, truth and above all... love. But he had one problem - he's never been in love!

And I... I have nothing to write about.

Happy New 2011

What is the feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's goodbye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.
