Come away

“The host is rushing ‘twixt day and night,
And where is there hope or deed as fair?
Caoilte tossing his burning hair,
And Niamh calling Away, come away.”

– W. B. Yeats

Dublin we’re coming

So here is a bit of James Joyce in anticipation.

 

“I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today.

I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day.”

 

– James Joyce

 

Autumn

“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.”

John Donne

Berlin Love

“Berlin was charismatic in the roguish way of a love… It was a lover who was a little dangerous in ways that didn’t always show, keeping you a bit on edge, a bit in love and endlessly forgiving because he made her feel that she was exactly where she was meant to be… ”

– Whitney Otto, Eight Girls Taking Pictures.

We’re off on an adventure

“Let us step into the night and pursue

that flighty temptress,

adventure.” 

 

JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Sam Shepard

One of the most inspiration play-writes past away today…I’m am sad.

“I’m a great believer in chaos. I don’t believe that you start with a formula and then you fulfill the formula. Chaos is a much better instigator, because we live in chaos — we don’t live in a rigorous form.”

— Sam Shepard in conversation with Clare Dwyer-Hogg, 2013
(I found this on Bustle)

 

“When you consider all the writers who never even had a machine. Who would have given an eyeball for a good typewriter. Any typewriter. All the ones who wrote on a matchbook covers. Paper bags. Toilet paper. Who had their writing destroyed by their jailers. Who persisted beyond all odds.”

– Sam Shepard, True West
