an excerpt of an entry in jeanette winterson’s column:

Some days are like this – nothing really gets done and what does get done is pointless. Then, out comes a poem or a cat, or a flower, or a sunburst, or even a good piece of cheese, and the tilted world rights.

I admit it, I am struggling with my life at the moment – not my work life or my inner life, but the how to manage the incessant ignorant demands of senseless life. The bureaucratic nosy-parker form-filling time-wasting email-crazy, texting nightmare, junk sham of life that technology has locked us into. I seem to have spent all day today talking to Call Centres, arranging paperwork for VAT returns, filing receipts, checking out travel data, and it’s the mental equivalent of stuffing your face with Big Macs.

    hi banzai cat, if you like magical realism, you might also like her novels. all of them brimming with insights on love and the meaning of life (most of them surcharged with lesbianism, that being her sexual orientation), always full of philosophical undertones, and expositions on the significance of art.
