JohnLennonDaliStyle

“Beneath memory and experience, beneath imagination and invention—beneath words, as she says — there are rhythms to which memory and imagination and words all move; and the writer’s job is to go down deep enough to begin to feel that rhythm, to find it, move to it, be moved by it, and let it move memory and imagination to find words.”

– Ursula K. Le Guin
