No Box of Kittens

To understand a profound thought is to have, at the moment one understands it, a profound thought oneself; and this demands some effort, a genuine descent to the heart of oneself … Only desire and love give us the strength to make this effort. The only books that we truly absorb are those we read with real appetite, after having worked hard to get them, so great had been our need of them.

The futility of it all—.so I broke off; and have indeed been feeling that rather persistently […] I know the feeling now, when I can’t spin a sentence and sit mumbling and turning; and nothing flits by my brain, which is as a blank window. So I shut my studio door and go to bed, stuffing my ears with rubber; and there I lie a day or two. And what leagues I travel in, the time! Such “sensations” spread over my spine and head directly I give them the chance; such an exaggerated tiredness; such anguishes and despairs; and heavenly relief and rest; and then misery again. Never was anyone so tossed up and down by the body as I am, I think. But it is over; and put away…

A new friend! Heidi! Neat. ANYHOO, since I got that Pinocchio comic happening a week and some days from now, Gunshow updates will change to be on Tuesday and Thursday instead, since Pinocchio will be M-W-F. That way you get something every day of the week, and two things on Wednesday (BACK). So yeah. Not next week but the week after, Gunshow will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. Okay. Good hustle team!!
