Life is not promised—it is crucial for a writer to respect time. Without urgency or panic, a writer can use this recognition to both make the necessary time for writing, and make much of that time.
~ bell hooks, Remembered Rapture: The writer at work
I had never read anything by bell hooks, but so many people described the impact of her writing after her death last December that I thought I had better check her out. I am beginning to see what drew so many readers: her methodical steps through her own psyche make you see her, really see another person. So far that's all I can say.
Note: I've decided to make Monday the day for either a quote or "what I'm reading." sometimes a combination of the two.
Also: I was off yesterday for Day 2 of Passover.
