I recently read a quote by Marguerite Duras.
“A writer is a foreign country.”
How true! We’re as diverse as the cultures of the world, as different (and complex) as France is to China.
Some days I feel as though a member of the allied forces – unified and well supported, networked in a broader form of patriotism. The sense of power in terms of accomplishment is almost tangible and I can do anything—nothing can stop me. Other days I feel as remote as a tiny island-nation wherein the only one believing in me is myself.
There are so many ways in which to interpret Duras’ insightful quote. I suppose that’s why it’s now one of my favorites.
