"Every new book is like a pilgrimage, a long long walk where faith in the eventual destination has to be renewed again and again. I am happy to have set out once more." --May Sarton, At Seventy
This may be true not only of starting new books, but new years. It certainly mirrors my experience of both. Unpredictable, exasperating, joyful, puzzling--with occasional side trips and reversals.
Happy writing, reading, and living.
