”All this business of a labour to accomplish, before I can end, of words to say, a truth to recover, in order to say it, before I can end, of an imposed task, once known, long neglected, finally forgotten, to perform, before I can be done with speaking, done with listening, I invented it all, in the hope it would console me, help me to go on, allow me to think of myself as somewhere on a road, moving, between a beginning and an end, gaining ground, losing ground, getting lost, but somehow in the long run making headway.”
// Samuel Beckett, The Unnamable (1953).
"Writing is seeing. It is paying attention." Kate DiCamillo.
As writers we take trains instead of cars so that we can see the old couple in the corner who can't let go of each other.
We walk instead of taking the bus so that we can come across the man who suddenly stops on the road and let's go of the phone pressed to his ear in shock at the news he has just received.
We pay attention to pain... to love... To both the mediocre and the spectacular.
Don't let your world go by without watching carefully because from the richness of our world are we able to replicate truth in the ones that we create.
✨B I R D’ S E Y E V I E W ✨ “When we pull back and get, for a moment, the ‘bird’s eye’ view of life, it reveals meanings that are ungraspable by the narrow focus of our usual worm’s eye view.”
