A Quote

“It’s so effortless to let my loneliness defeat me, make me mold myself to whatever would (in some way – but not wholly) relieve it. I must never forget it… I want sensuality and sensitivity, both… Let me never deny that… I want to err on the side of violence and excess, rather than to underfill my moments.”

Susan Sontag, Reborn: Journals and Notebooks, 1947-1963

    What a fantastic quote, let us all never forget our duality.
    I am a long time reader of your blog, but I rarely comment, mainly as others say such wonderful things in comment boxes I often struggle to add to them. However I am being encouraged to write more, and communicate more with others – so here I am.
    This quote moves me, like your blog, the tension in accepting what you must and needing more. The hope in your writings, and seeing it fade, but I hope you will find release in writing at least and continue to do so.
    humbly, twiggs
