Speak, Memory: Nabakov and 49 other Authors on What It Is to Remember.

 

 

A beautiful collection of thoughts on how memory shapes, crafts, and claims both the creator and the creative process.  Thank you, Paula.

my favorite:

the lost jewels of memory,
intense love, secret nights and permanent kisses,
the fragment of public or private happiness.
A few, the wolves, collected thighs,
other men loved the dawn scratching
mountain ranges or ice floes, locomotives, numbers.
For me happiness was to share singing,
praising, cursing, crying with a thousand eyes.
I ask forgiveness for my bad ways:
my life had no use on earth.
― Pablo Neruda, from Still Another Day
