Mark Twain (via justbreatheagain)
I’ll be honest I kind of scrolled past this at first and was like “ok that’s nice, but it’s just the feminist blogosphere and I’ll just get sad because no one is ever really going to listen.” BUT NO, THAT IS THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE GODDAMN UNITED STATES. Maybe things aren’t 100% hopeless after all.
OH GOD, JOE THE BIDEN *__*
I think it can also be added, to quote Joe Biden again, “this is a big fuckin’ deal”.
To write —
The inkwell, crystalline like consciousness, with its drop, at bottom, of shadows relative to letting something be: then, take the lamp away.
As you noted, one doesn’t write, luminously, on a dark field; the alphabet of stars alone does that, sketched or interrupted; man writes black upon white.
This fold of dark lace, which holds the infinite, woven by thousands, each according to his own thread or extension, not knowing the secret, assembles distant spacings in which riches yet to be inventoried sleep: vampire, knot, foliage; and our job is to present them.
Wilt have no kind companion, thou reap’st what thou hast sown"
