If you are young in years but already weary in spirit, already on the way to becoming an automaton, it may do you good to say to your boss — under your breath, of course — “Fuck you, Jack! You don’t own me!” … If you can fall in love again and again, if you can forgive your parents for the crime of bringing you into the world, if you are content to get nowhere, just take each day as it comes, if you can forgive as well as forget, if you can keep from growing sour, surly, bitter and cynical, man you’ve got it half licked.

"Give me a few days of peace in your arms-- I need it terribly. I'm ragged, worn, exhausted. After that I can face the world."
~Henry Miller, from a letter to Anaïs Nin, featured in A Literate Passion: Letters of Anaïs Nin & Henry Miller 1932-1953

“Your soul is utterly mysterious–but it is intact and generous and understanding. If it can hate it can also forgive. It is abiding. It does not change color, like the chameleon. There is something leonine about it. You can swim in troubled waters and be at peace.”
— Henry Miller

Stop the Static
Dark, cool morning in Palestine, Texas “Stop listening to the static. . . . everything in the world is like this transmission making its way across the dark. But everything–death, life, everything–it’s all completely suffused with static. But if you listen to the static too much it f*cks you up.” As a television viewer, I am far behind the times, often choosing to binge watch a series created…

Thoughts in the Night While Painting in The Gallery at Redlands
Thoughts in the Night While Painting in The Gallery at Redlands
After a four-day hiatus, it’s good to be working on this painting again The celebrated biographies give us the sufferings and hardships of the great. But the sufferings and hardships of the unknown are often more eloquent. The tribulations of fate weave a mantle of unsuspected heroism about these lesser figures. To win through by sheer force of genius is one thing; to survive and continue to…

"It was the end for me. And yet not an end. In all the years which have since elapsed she remains the woman I loved and lost, the unattainable one. In her China-blue eyes, so cold and inviting, so round and mirror-like, I see myself forever and ever as the ridiculous man, the lonely soul, the wanderer, the restless frustrated artist, the man in love with love, always in search of the absolute, always seeking the unattainable. Behind the iron curtain her image remains fresh and vivid as of yore, and nothing, it seems, can tarnish it or cause it to fade away."

Newspapers engender lies, hatred, greed, envy, suspicion, fear, malice. We don’t need the truth as it is dished up to us in the daily papers. We need peace and solitude and idleness. If we could all go on strike and honestly disavow all interest in what our neighbor is doing we might get a new lease on life. We might learn to do without telephones and radios and newspapers, without machines of any kind, without factories, without mills, without mines, without explosives, without battleships, without politicians, without lawyers, without canned goods, without gadgets, without razor blades even or cellophane or cigarettes or money. This is a pipe dream, I know. - Henry Miller, The Colossus of Maroussi

"Man builds on the ruins of his former selves. When we are reduced to nothingness, we come alive again. To season one's destiny with the dust of one's folly, that is the trick."
