Why?

I lay in bed daydreaming for five or ten minutes.

Suddenly, I realized that I had everything necessary to build a 3D input device right there in the room with me!

I built the device, which I called the Tricorder, out of two analog joysticks, a Super Pinky rubber ball, a bunch of rubber bands, and some clamps.

photograph "A l'homme Arme : 25, Rue des Blancs-Manteaux" by Eugene Atget 1900

there must be a few thousand photos by Atget here, including this one, of a horse-drawn tram
and this one, of the Cabaret de L'Enfer

Thus he himself is entangled. Then the widow of Eli's brother comes up to New York from Virginia ostensibly just to visit, but, in quite genuine affection, she hopes that Eli will come back with her. She is played by Kim Basinger, tenderly convincing in this woman's pity for the life that Eli lives and in her longing for him.

...We had to buy smaller forks,
smaller chairs, stop talking.

You took the saltshakers
off. I decided I'd only make
soft foods so we wouldn't have
to use knives anymore.

It kept on shrinking for days,
the butter taking over the dinner
plates, the green beans looking
longer and mean,

until it was just a thin slip
passed between us, a note...

LAMASHTU DAUGHTER OF ANU, HER FIRST NAME IS THAT, THE SECOND IS: SISTER OF THE GODS OF THE STREETS, THE THIRD IS: DAGGER WHICH SMASHES THE HEAD, ETC. UNTIL, THE SEVENTH IS: BE EXORCISED BY THE GREAT GODS

WHAT AM I TO DO (FOR MY CHILD WITH 6 TOES)
Having a supernumerary toe was seen to be a blessing on one foot, but a curse on the other. The earliest representation of humans, the plaster figures from Jordan have 6 toes, as had all the brothers of Goliath.

And then when I worked for Robert Graves, one of the marvelous things about that experience was the way Robert worked all the time. Something would interrupt, or someone would come to the door, and Robert would deal with it and then go right back to work. Robert did everything in longhand. I was impressed by the way he worked. He was a wonderful model. One of the great things for Robert was that there was no telephone. Eventually he had a wind-up phone in one of the corners of the house. But for quite some time, if you wanted to get in touch with Robert, you called in town and a message was sent. The telephone is a tremendous distraction. For years I didn't have one, and I don't think I've ever really gotten used to it.

I've found that the best thing for me is to insist that some part of the day--and for me, it's the morning until about two in the afternoon--be dedicated to writing. I go into my room and shut the door, and that's that. You have to make exceptions, of course, but you just stick to it, and then it becomes a habit, and I think it's a valuable one. Flaubert said that inspiration consists of sitting down at the same table at the same time every day, and I think that's the way one should look at it. If you're waiting for lightning to strike a stump, you're going to sit there for the rest of the your life.

...He has no love
Of this life, only faith: that when they come
For him one day, someone will save his name,
Telling of a boy who knew the terrors
Of life so well he saw no other thing...
