A Writer's Diary.

 May 26, 1924

"If we didn't live venturously, plucking the wild goat by the beard, and trembling over precipices, we should never be depressed, I've no doubt; but already should be faded, fatalistic and aged."

-Virginia Woolf (1882-1941)

Her only daughter had been turned into a swimming pool.
I love the swirling effect your blog creates.

Agreed completely @ Anushka. Verily so :)
Your one-liners continue to be smile-bearers!

@Anushka: My life should be chronicled as a trippy ride in and out of obsessions.

You got me thinking. You're very very right, actually.

@The Orange Cat: Thank you.

@JD: Ahh! Same goes for your comments!

You can tell from this that she was bipolar. I almost envy her, her lust for life. In the movie, The Hours, where Nicole Kidman portrays her as this woman who wants to plunge herself into London's jolting midst to taste the marrow of life, I wished I cud also experience life in the hyperreal that she must have.

But I suppose you cant get the high without succumbing to the lows, can you? *sughs*
