2. "I have gone out, a possessed witch,haunting the black air, braver at night;dreaming evil, I have done my hitchover the plain houses, light by light:lonely thing, twelve-fingered, out of mind.A woman like that is not a woman, quite.I have been her kind.I have found the warm caves in the woods,filled them with skillets, carvings, shelves,closets, silks, innumerable goods;fixed the suppers for the worms and the elves:whining, rearranging the disaligned.A woman like that is misunderstood.I have been her kind.I have ridden in your cart, driver,waved my nude arms at villages going by,learning the last bright routes, survivorwhere your flames still bite my thighand my ribs crack where your wheels wind.A woman like that is not ashamed to die.I have been her kind."
Author: Anne Sexton

6. "That was enough dialogue for a few pages - he had to get into some fast, red-hot action.There weren't any more hitches now. The story flowed like a torrent. The margin bell chimed almost staccato, the roller turned with almost piston-like continuity, the pages sprang up almost like blobs of batter from a pancake skillet. The beer kept rising in the glass and, contradictorily, steadily falling lower. The cigarettes gave up their ghosts, long thin gray ghosts, in a good cause; the mortality rate was terrible.His train of thought, the story's lifeline, beer-lubricated but no whit impeded, flashed and sputtered and coursed ahead like lightning in a topaz mist, and the loose fingers and hiccuping keys followed as fast as they could. ("The Penny-A-Worder")"
Author: Cornell Woolrich

Today's Quote

Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinkin' fast?I'm drownin' in the poison, got no future, got no past?But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free?I've got nothin' but affection for all those who've sailed with meEverybody movin' if they ain't already there?Everybody got to move somewhere?Stick with me baby, stick with me anyhow?Things should start to get interestin' right about nowMy clothes are wet, tight on my skin?Not as tight as the corner that I painted myself in?I know that fortune is waitin' to be kind?So give me your hand and say you'll be mineWell, the emptiness is endless, cold as the clay?You can always come back, but you can't come back all the way?Only one thing I did wrong?Stayed in Mississippi a day too long-Bob Dylan, "Mississippi"
