From Ralph Solonitz, of course…
Note: Ralph originally sent me this art on 22 December.
The real writer is one|
who really writes. Talent
is an invention like phlogiston
after the fact of fire.
Work is its own cure. You have to
like it better than being loved.
-- Marge Piercy, For the young who want to
in The Moon Is Always Female.
Take an ax to the prison wall.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
-- Rumi, Quietness
