If it's a poem giving me problems, I re-read it the next morning before going for my daily walk. Exercise often seems to shake things loose for me. So does doing more research on whatever topic I'm trying to write about -- it's amazing how bits of seemingly unrelated information can come together if you just have enough bits!(less)

Ann Schwader is on page 37 of 258 of Cassilda's Song: "She Will Be Raised a Queen" -- ambitious male survivors of a ruined world rescue (& use) women from another world entirely. Oops. Deeply strange, decadent, & just a little opaque (for me). Loved the yellow wallpaper allusion!

H.P. Lovecraft
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.”
H.P. Lovecraft

H.P. Lovecraft
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of the infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”
H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories

H.P. Lovecraft
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”
H.P. Lovecraft, Supernatural Horror in Literature

Agatha Christie
“It is clear that the books owned the shop rather than the other way about. Everywhere they had run wild and taken possession of their habitat, breeding and multiplying, and clearly lacking any strong hand to keep them down.”
Agatha Christie, The Clocks

H.P. Lovecraft
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.”
H.P. Lovecraft
