quote unquote

I write because I am entranced by dusk, confounded by the government, at once scared and beguiled by the future, envious of children, forgetful of the past, exasperated by myself, uncomfortable in crowded rooms, curious, ignorant, egotistical, good with vegetables, selfish, lost in the snow and by the sea, hopeful, human.

--martin stannard 'why I write' [conversations with myself: selected reviews and notes 1984 - 1998; stride, 1999]
