report from the interior


“NOVEMBER 17: To tell the truth, I really don’t mind being here. Uprooting myself so much. . . in the past few years, I’ve achieved an equilibrium with my environment: indifference, or to put it better, calm – all places are both good & bad; the important thing is to go about the business of living, to fulfill the inner imperatives that keep me going. About America, the place is such a festering infection, a great boil of troubles . . . it’s quite exciting to be around.”

“Simply try to live as best you can, now, with whatever your life consists of. I think the closest man can come to the feeling of eternity is by living in the present . . . ”
