#17 – Nuclear Winter

Darkness smothered Earth

Most vegetation shriveled

And lifeforms chilled.

Quotation – September 21, 2012

When I start on a book, I have been thinking about it and making occasional notesfor some time–20 years in the case of Imperial Earth, and 10 years in the case of the novel I’m presently working on.  So I have lots of theme, locale, subjects and technical ideas.  It’s amazing how the subconscious self works on these things.  I don’t worry about long periods of not doing anything.  I know my subconscious is busy.

Humour is the great thing, the saving thing.  The minute it crops up, all our irritation and resentments slip away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.

Mounds of mystery

Robotic investigations

Enlightenment scarce.

Quotation – September 8, 2012

By the time one is eighty, it is said, there is no longer a tug of war in the garden with the May flowers hauling like mad against the claims of the other months.  All is at last in balance and all is serene.  The gardener is usually dead, of course.

Henry Mitchell

Quotation – September 7, 2012

Life can’t ever really defeat a writer who is in love with writing, for life itself is a writer’s lover until death — fascinating, cruel, lavish, warm, cold , treacherous, constant.

Edna Ferber
