Emerson and Randomness

I received my copy of The Writer in the mail yesterday. There are some pretty good articles this month.

On Emerson (p.8)

"My Journals...are full of disjointed dreams, audacities, unsystematic irresponsible lampoons of systems and all manner of rambling reveries..." And as Robert D. Richardson (author of the article) goes on to say, "the aimlessness and lack of system were part of the point..."

You wouldn't believe how many notebooks I have with bits and pieces of this and that.

Snippets of dialogue... "I've been a lot of places you don't ever want to be. Done things you can't imagine." And thus Destrie speaks to me of his character and who he has become.
