Randomness

Poem about butterflies and writing:

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by.  How

else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment?  For the

moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone.

That is where the writer scores over his fellows:  he catches the

changes of his mind on the hop.

~Vita Sackville-West
