If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.
From things that have happened and from things as they exist and from all things that you know and all those you cannot know, you make something through your invention that is not a representation but a whole new thing truer than anything true and alive, and you make it alive, and if you make it well enough, you give it immortality.
Writing and travel broaden your ass if not your mind and I like to write standing up.
I wake up in the morning and my mind starts making sentences, and I have to get rid of them fast - talk them or write them down.
