Not Resolved

Find myself unresolved recently, right when I need to reinterpret things, my words fail. For Maha I promised a blog on a picture she commented on and need to find my notes from a class called “Writing About the Intangible” taken years ago at SFU in Vancouver. For the moment I’ll let someone else speak here:

From “Men Explain Things to Me” by Rebecca Solnit quoting from To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf:

“For now she need not think about anybody. She could be herself, by herself. And that was what now she often felt the need of—to think; well, not even to think. To be silent; to be alone. All the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal, evaporated; and one shrunk, with a sense of solemnity, to being oneself, a wedge shaped core of darkness, something invisible to others. Although she continued to knit, and sat upright, it was thus that she felt herself; and this self having shed attachments was free for the strangest adventures. When life sank down for a moment, the range of experience seemed limitless. … Beneath it is all dark, it is all spreading, it is unfathomably deep; but now and again we rise to the surface and that is what you see us by. Her horizon seemed to her limitless.”

Scott
