Sometimes, I teach creative writing to the youths of the nation (high school kids) and the advice I always give them, no matter what, is to write your obsessions. To give into them. To chase them. To follow where they lead. Because whatever you’re obsessed with or consumed by will come out in your fiction eventually, whether it’s sex or pokemon or baking or art deco or frayed jeans, and it will...

Fascinating biography of a man who became a legend. Interesting to see him as just a man, a person, trying to do the best he could for his people in the face of Manifest Destiny and genocide.

This is a pretty satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, though it's also probably my least favorite of the three.

It's solid and it's good in all the ways the previous two novels were. It's exciting, interesting, with a strong sense of history, culture

“The ocean of the past, I still hide from so much of it and rely on all that I don't run from. Everything before him, I waited for the nightmare to end, and it did when he accepted me into his arms. It was a new birth, a new life, but it flashed too briefly and left me with only these rabid bits of time that eat me, these memories that haunt me, but he, the ghost I need, remains lost.”
Edward J. Rathke, Ash Cinema

“Why is it that words like these seem dull and cold? Is it because there is no word tender enough to be your name?”
James Joyce, The Dead
tags: love

“I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it calls itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning.”
James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

“I meant to write about death, only life came breaking in as usual”
Virginia Woolf

“You should know that there is little you can seek in this world, that there is no need for you to be so greedy, in the end all you can achieve are memories, hazy, intangible, dreamlike memories which are impossible to articulate. When you try to relate them, there are only sentences, the dregs left from the filter of linguistic structures.”
Gao Xingjian, Soul Mountain

“You shall be my roots and
I will be your shade,
though the sun burns my leaves.

You shall quench my thirst and
I will feed you fruit,
though time takes my seed.

And when I'm lost and can tell nothing of this earth
you will give me hope.

And my voice you will always hear.
And my hand you will always have.

For I will shelter you.
And I will comfort you.
And even when we are nothing left,
not even in death,
I will remember you.”
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves

Ha, I was just kidding, Richard. I kept hitting the friend button and it wasn't working and I was like, What the hell's going on!

And, yeah, hangouts are great.


Richard Thomas what seems peculiar of me, eddy? the security question? just wanted to make sure people knew what they were getting when they friended me here - great chatting with you the other night
