I think I'd love to go to Dostoyevski's "The Idiot," or "Crime and Punishment," Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises"—a book I wanted to "live in," when I was a kid, and of course, "King of Angels," the Savannah, GA, of my youth. What would I do in these worlds: just be alive, look a lot, see a lot, and be alive to the magic of art. (less)

“If you are what you eat, then why aren’t you what you desire?"
Desire stands in the great no-man’s land of human activity: the zone of most conflict, fear, and anxiety. It scares us. We are often asked to hate it—by those who claim to have given it up for “better” things, and who often, hypocritically, haven’t.”
