the extra state of matter


lately, i've been rather wordless, in a weeklong writer's block. do you ever feel like your mind is stuffed, but moving at a most desultory, downtrodden speed? total linguistic lassitude. you have a jar full of good words, but when you dump them out, they don't seem to fall into that precious extra state of matter -- the sentence -- quite right. ideas that haven't found a voice are precious, but very hard to handle. they unravel with ease, and slip off in the night when you fall asleep thinking, i'll write that one down…tomorrow.

  3. I'm writing college essays at the moment and completely understand this feeling. You think you have the words, but they don't translate to paper.

  7. I have the same problem or rather a dilema when I really want to say something beautiful about something. I always have a feeling it s gonna be said less descriptive than how I really feel and it will end in some usual, thousand times repeated words. But don't worry, photos are storytellers too, and yours are indeed....

  8. i love the juxtaposition of photos of these great works and the feeling of wordlessness... we'll turn to faith for our frustations and learn from Faust's mistake :D your style of writing is a big inspiration to me, it's so original and authentic...
