night, white.

travel preparations.

- countdown to commencing the trek to russia: seventeen hours.
- probability of sleep in that time: unlikely.

culled for you.

- "Yet it is the poet's business to give us the feeling of an intimate union between the word and the mind." (Paul Valery, Poetry & Abstract Thought)
- "Talking nonsense is the sole privilege mankind possesses over the other organisms. It's by talking nonsense that one gets to the truth! I talk nonsense, therefore I'm human. Not one single truth has ever been arrived at without people first having talked a dozen reams of nonsense, even ten dozen reams of it, and that's an honourable thing in its own way; well, but we can't even talk nonsense with our own brains!" (Razumikhin in Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment)
- my daily bus
