"The suppression of inner patterns in favor of patterns created by society is dangerous to us. Artistic revolt, innovation, experiment should not be met with hostility. They may disturb an established order or an artificial conventionality, but they may rescue us from death in life, from robot life, from boredom, from loss of the self, from enslavement."
From Vol 5 of her diaries. ( and unfortunately, no, I'm not reading them---yet, but is yoinked from Brain Pickings ):
Me: "Alice At The Vesta", a Dark Victorian short story destined for a steampunk anthology (I keep forgetting the title), is back with notes! (Very good ones) from the beta-reader. I must now meditate!
I've also returned to getting Charm School Graphique Vol 1 into a print book. Some elements I'd worked on back in Oct 2013 now look 'eh'. Well, such is the benefit of Time. Gives me the chance to do it again, mostly right. ;)
I hope you are all enjoying your books! (envy!)
all the best, ~~eee
