Over the Horizon April 13, 2013

Posted by The Typist in cryptical envelopment, quotes, Toulouse Street.

“Of all the islands he’d visited, two stood out. The island of the past, he said, where the only time was past time and the inhabitants were bored and more or less happy, but where the weight of illusion was so great that the island sank a little deeper into the river every day. And the island of the future, where the only time was the future, and the inhabitants were planners and strivers, such strivers, said Ulises, that they were likely to end up devouring one another.”
— Roberto Bolano, The Savage Detectives

Believe in your work. Launch the raft. Trust the currents. Find your own island.

Island of the past and future is so poetic and philosophical in outlook:)
