The first genius of my writing career: in which I have a rave review for a completely unwritten novel.

art, etc. / books

I have to believe in something other than emptiness. I’ve been feeling the bite of emptiness here and there these past couple of days. That’s exactly it!

Powerlessness and power

Natural world
