    The Wave In The Mind





    As for the mot juste, you are quite wrong. Style is a very simple matter: it is all rhythm. Once you get that, you can’t use the wrong words. But on the other hand here am I sitting after half the morning, crammed with ideas, and visions, and so on, and can’t dislodge them, for lack of the right rhythm. Now this is very profound, what rhythm is, and goes far deeper than words. A sight, an emotion, creates this wave in the mind, long before it makes words to fit it; and in writing (such is my present belief) one has to recapture this, and set this working (which has nothing apparently to do with words) and then, as it breaks and tumbles in the mind, it makes words to fit it. But no doubt I shall think differently next year.

    - Virginia Woolf
    writing to Vita Sackville-West

    (mot juste = the exact, appropriate word)

    Because thinking beyond one culture expands your mind, expands your world.

    Dog Force, your video said it wasn't available in my country, so I posted another video of the song. Great song, always like his music.

    Thanks much, Alpha. Shoot- it seems to be a licensing issue with "Vevo" videos- this is the second time. It's too bad- the song version is the same, although the Vevo video imagery is a well-done treat in itself. Next time some PF members are travelling in Asia, there should be no licensing wall- y'all come back and enjoy it for a moment, okay? :- )
