Judith Shapiro has entered the blogosphere with Remembering Matters and it looks and reads great. She runs with Nobel laureate Wislawa Szymborska’s poem on the joy of writing. I am in the final stages of writing a new novel so I found the following lines to be an inspiration….
Is there then a world
where I rule absolutely on fate?
A time I bind with chains of signs?
An existence become endless at my bidding?
The joy of writing.
The power of preserving.
Revenge of a mortal hand.
By Wislawa Szymborska
From “No End of Fun”, 1967
Translated by S. Baranczak & C. Cavanagh
This is the poet, not the blogger— just so you know…
