    “So, then, in general metaphysical terms, our expression is that, like a purgatory, all that is commonly called "existence," which we call Intermediateness, is quasi-existence, neither real nor unreal, but expression of attempt to become real, or to generate for or recruit a real existence.”
    ― Charles Fort, The Book of the Damned

    “I do believe in an everyday sort of magic -- the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we're alone.”
    ― Charles de Lint

    “i took a night drive.
    i needed to get away.
    i needed to know
    it's okay to go
    and have no destination,
    where time moves slow
    or doesn't exist.
    that life can be like this,
    aimless wandering,
    just breathing,
    living,
    driving forever underneath the stars.”
    ― Ava, You Are Safe Here.

    Darlene Ringle: "Good. His reaction to it is self-evident enough that to follow up with a particular Gore Vidal remark would be redundantly stating the obvious." --Swanning in Tupper Town

    APPENDED: "Twenty-four years later, on Wednesday, August 28, at nine-thirty o'clock, in full view of ten million people, the little door in William F. Buckley Jr.'s forehead suddenly opened and out sprang that wild cuckoo which I had always known was there but had wanted so much for others, preferably millions of others, to get a good look at. I think those few seconds of madness, to use his word, were well worth a great deal of patient effort on my part. " --Gore Vidal

    “Poetry is a life-cherishing force. For poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry.”
