Refresh yourself, sister
With the water from the copper bowl with bits of ice in it -
Open your eyes under water, wash them -
Dry yourself with a rough towel and cast
A glance at a book you love.
In this way begin
A lovely and useful day.
 - Bertolt Brecht

  • ". . . as I have said often enough, I write for myself in multiplicate,
    a not unfamiliar phenomenon on the horizon of shimmering deserts."
    - Vladimir Nabokov
