How God Prays
-- Annie Dillard, For the Time Being
*leather thongs, wrapped around the forehead and left arm, to which are attached small leather boxes containing passages from Exodus and Deuteronomy, worn during weekday morning prayer
Scribbled secret notebooks, and wild typewritten pages, for yr own joy... Submissive to everything, open, listening... Something that you feel will find its own form. --Jack Kerouac, from "Belief and Technique for Modern Prose"
