i keep buying books

and they stack up faster than anyone could ever read them. i bought six or seven books just because they were referenced, by author or title, in another book. it happened because i knew if that particular author had mentioned them, that they must be very important for me to read. so far, it’s turned out to be true.

if there is an answer to life, if it exists anywhere in us, i believe it must be hidden in art. in the beautiful objects that we create with a secret, unconscious passion, there must be a residue of The Answer left behind. if every masterpiece, every soul rending novel or painting or piece of music, if they can all be added up, if the special piece of each one can connect with each other one, maybe, when mixed just right, the riddle will finally be answered…
