"What if I did, it’s a different matter with me! Maybe I do believe, but not quite. Though I don’t fully believe, still I’m not going to say that God should be shot. Back when I was serving with the hussars, I kept reflecting about God. It’s an accepted fact in all poems that a hussar drinks and carouses; so, sir, maybe I did drink, but, would you believe, I used to jump out of bed in the middle of the night, just in my socks, and start crossing myself in front of the icon, asking God to send me faith, because even then I couldn’t be at peace: is there God, or not? I really have a hot time of it! In the morning I’d get distracted, of course, and faith would seem to disappear again, and generally I’ve noticed that faith always disappears somewhat during the day."
-Kapiton Maximovich, in Demons

Inspirational wall banner, your heart is in the right place, but here’s some real advice from a wolf:
1. Howl a lot and do it all night long.
2. Eat cats and small animals from a neighborhood.
3. Turn into a dog and go live in the neighborhood.
4. You’re a dog now.

"In short, your budget appears to reflect the values of your favorite philosopher, Ayn Rand, rather than the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Setting up food options for my parties was a disaster before I got a triple crock-pot! This time, I can have my warm mayonnaise, bubbling cream cheese, and hot greek yogurt ready for my guests as soon as they walk in the door.
As long as I don’t forget to order my pack of 275 frozen danishes for dipping, this party is going to be a success.

The Sheltering Sky, by Paul Bowles.

Lots of bad writing in this book. This part I liked.

"Port laughed abruptly, ‘And now you know [life’s] not like that. right? It’s more like smoking a cigarette. The first few puffs it tastes wonderful, and you don’t even think of its ever being used up. Then you begin taking it for granted. Suddenly you realize it’s nearly burned down to the end. And then’s when you’re conscious of the bitter taste’
‘But I’m always conscious of the unpleasant taste and of the end approaching,’ she said.
‘Then you should give up smoking.’
‘How mean you are!’ she cried.
‘I’m not mean!’ he objected, almost upsetting his class as he raised himself on his elbow to drink. ‘It seems logical doesn’t it? Or I suppose living’s a habit like smoking. You keep saying you’re going to give it up, but you go right on’”

"Flowers, clogs, or all of us outgrew our shoes"

Art in the ghetto.
Fumbling for dawn
in the twilight,
the twilight of life
in its dawn.
