Happy Birthday, Stephen King b. September 21, 1947
“Can I be blunt on this subject? If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”—Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.
The Paris Library floods, 1910.
…and the weight of the earth is pressed to my ribs.
— Franz Kafka

Joyce Carol Oates, The Collector of Hearts
Love does not always have to be this mountain top experience, but it does need to be as constant as a mountain; never moving, always steady and willing to stay.
Our imagination flies - we are its shadow on the earth.
