    "I have no reader in mind - the reader is me as I re-read" - Philip Roth

    Roth's words resonate, and feel comfortable, to those of us who are still, slowly working ourselves out on the page.  We don't necessarily need comments, feedback...not yet, anyway.

    However, as Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, "many people die with their music still in them", so to avoid that sense of feeling, ultimately, unfulfilled, perhaps we should urgently try and find ways to create an authentic outward expression of the inner one, even whenthat vision is problematic, or even nightmarish, as in Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights in the Prado in Madrid.

    Quote 2991

    I think that all our political leaders should go to Canterbury Cathedral at once in order to learn about visions for the future. The cathedral was begun in the late eleventh century and only completed two hundred years later. Now that's a vision for the future. That's what we need - Melvyn Bragg, 30/05/13
