Why do you write?

Enjoyment, purely for pleasure at the moment. Its exhilarating some days, when you feel you've painted a picture still warm and smelly, with all the deep, dank shades (the lemon-florid lights) of your mind... I have given up on placing life on the page... it's beyond me. It's too gigantic and inexplicable. But I have these dreams that might be comparable; that's what's the fuel, if I had to pick something.

11/30
Because its great.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Herman Melville, Moby Dick. Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises. James Joyce, Ulysses. Graham Greene, The Quiet America. Vladimir Nabokov, his short stories.

C S Forester, The Good Shepherd. Jack Kerouac, On The Road. Gunter Grass, Cat and Mouse. Ryszard Kapuscinsky, The Shadow of the Sun.

Hi Ivan: Thank you for your response to "The Rest Home." I have yet to achieve closure, but I'm still writing out my loss in hope of achieving some peace. Thanks again.
