L.A. Story

"I inscribe this book to S.D. — English, 
innumerable, and an Angel. 
Also: I offer her that kernel of myself that I 
have saved, somehow— the central heart that 
deals not in words, traffics not with dreams,
and is untouched by time, by joy, by
adversities.”

My favorite inscription, to date.

therefined:

“Because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope, your scent graces the paper. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern and impersonal forms of communication will never replace.”

Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be”

In a minute there is time 
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.
For I have known them all already, known them all: 
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons, 
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.

-T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
