"Often, I write all day long with white ink on white paper, late into the night, until it is all I can do to feel the letters curving to earth from the tip of the pen. And then, I fall asleep. Dreaming of running, or maybe driving in a car the color of water, I wake the next day remembering nothing. I gather the stack of paper & a pen of black on the desk in front of me and the words begin to dance over the page like long legged insects across a still lake. The words in white whisper behind & underneath the new day. If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can. There is nothing more to it than that." //
More and more I found myself at a loss for words and didn’t want to hear other people talking either. Their conversations seemed false and empty. I preferred to look at the sea, which said nothing and never made you feel alone.
