    "My passions drive me to the typewriter every day of my life, and they have driven me there since I was twelve. So I never have to worry about schedules. Some new thing is always exploding in me, and it schedules me, I don’t schedule it. It says: Get to the typewriter right now and finish this"

    Ray Bradbury

  4. El justo anhelo que todos, pobres y ricos, participasen por igual en la lotería, inspiró una indignada agitación, cuya memoria no han desdibujado los años. Algunos obstinados no comprendieron (o simularon no comprender) que se trataba de un orden nuevo, de una etapa histórica necesaria…Un esclavo robó un billete carmesí, que en el sorteo lo hizo acreedor a que le quemaran la lengua. El código fijaba esa misma pena para el que robaba un billete. Algunos babilonios argumentaban que merecía el hierro candente en su calidad de ladrón; otros magnánimos, que el verdugo debía aplicárselo porque así lo había determinado el azar…

    Jorge Luis Borges

Early notes on “The Sun Also Rises” give readers a sense of how different Hemingway’s novel might have been: http://nyr.kr/X4TaMU

“At the start, it seems, Hemingway was attempting to write a novel very different from what would become ‘The Sun Also Rises,’ which made his name as one of ‘those ones with their clear restrained writing.’ He imagined a book in which the ‘whole business’ of life gets expressed, in all of its messy detours and associations.”

    The biopic of James Brown, Get on Up is released in the United States today. Did you know that the ‘Godfather of Soul’ spent time in jail? Or that he learned to play the organ aged eight?

  8. Through the unknown, unremembered gate
    When the last of earth left to discover
    Is that which was the beginning
    T.S. Eliot
  9. El silencio es acompañante un tanto paradójico. Por un lado es esa textura perpetua, que yace al fondo de innumerables capas y texturas sonoras. Pero también es, o al menos parece, siempre efímero, incluso por momentos un estado inalcanzable. Siempre latente, aunque cuando lo alcanzas incluso dudas del encuentro, y para cuando estás listo para aceptar su existencia entonces, muy probablemente, ya se habrá ido.
    John Cage
