"We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another, unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward or fix us in the present. We are made of layers, cells, constellations."

— Anaïs Nin (via itsquoted)

A Writer’s Tools

A writer’s tools might include an inkwell and papyrus scrolls or less expensive wax tablets and stylus. The tablets could also be bound and they could be erased with the flat end of the stylus. Papyrus was made of the pith of a water plant; ink was a mixture of soot, resin, wine dregs and cuttlefish.

Roman Terracotta Inkwell (1st or 2nd Century A.D.)

Roman/Egyptian Papyrus Letter (early 3rd Century A.D.)

Byzantine/Egyptian Wooden Tablet (500-700 A.D.)

Roman Bronze Stylus (1st or 2nd Century A.D.)

"You have to work on getting higher. It’s like the big condors that fly in the thermals. The Universe is going to come along and bang you around a little bit and bring you down once in a while, so you just look around for good vibes and rise in them. When you blunder out of the good vibes into the bad vibes, try to be graceful about it until you find a place where you can rise a little. But if you keep wanting to get higher and you keep wanting to get higher… There’s a thing about that, invented by Suzuki-roshi, which is the theory of minimum desire. And he says you should desire desirelessness until the desire for desirelessness becomes a desire, and then you better level off about there. Desiring altitude is what makes the come-downs on the other side seem so heavy. Say, “I do not seek after enlightenment; neither do I linger in a place where no enlightenment exists.”"

— Stephen Gaskin, Hey Beatnik! This is the Farm Book (1974)

"When you’re young, thunderstorms seem scary. Like the sky is angry at you. But now that I’m older, something about its roar soothes me; it’s comforting to know that even nature needs to scream sometimes."
