I been reading here and there in the Sontag Diaries, a book stolen from Eric, because stolen books are that much better. (Which bookmark is mine?! -- an acute dilemma in the Sontag because there's plenty of passages ideal for drifting off to, and loosing your place. I say that with all respect for the woman, she was - in a word - brilliant, but come on - its a diary.)

Anyway this morning I stumbled upon the most beautiful quote: "I shall anticipate pleasure everywhere and find it, too, for it is everywhere! I shall involve myself wholly...everything matters![...]I am alive...I am beautiful...what else is there?"

So there, this just became a forum for the inspirational.

You know, I always find myself coming back to quote Sontag again and again. Never the same quote, mind you. Annoyingly brilliant.

And thanks for the bouquet!
