“Pain festers in isolation, it thrives in secrecy. Words are its nemesis, naming anguish the first step in defusing it, talking about the muck a woman slogs through - the squirms of self-hatred and guilt, the echoes of emptiness and need - a prerequisite for moving beyond it.”

Should I somehow send Bill Callahan a copy of the lust song I wrote to/about him? 

When I sent Jandek the entire album I wrote about how I was terrified he was a serial killer waiting out my window at night to kill me, he actually wrote me back,and sent two of his cds. 

This one sentence means we are sisters. I want to start a Jandek club where we listen to one cd a week and then discuss.

"Monster just curled up on my shoulder and purred in my ear just like the night she finally came out…"

“Monster just curled up on my shoulder and purred in my ear just like the night she finally came out of hiding from under the bed back in 1995 and I felt rigid with fear and responsibility for this little damaged kitty soul and at the same time transcendent that I could actually make someone happy just by being myself.”

- Apparently non-stop lady time means non-stop emotion.

"Yet those of us who have never really nailed it down, who have charged through life from enthusiasm…"

“Yet those of us who have never really nailed it down, who have charged through life from enthusiasm to enthusiasm, from new project to new project, even from personality-revolution to personality-revolution, have a secret also. I’m sorry to say it isn’t the kind that desperate people can use to improve themselves, like those ads in the newspaper. Sadly enough, it IS the kind that people in my seven-league but very leaky boots often take to psychiatrists, hoping to simplify their experience because they can’t cope with the murderous tangle of it. But for those of us who have lived through each twist and turn, the psychiatry sessions, the occasional abyss, the endless review of our lives to see where we went wrong, and then come to see our natures as strange and special manifestations of a time and place that will never come again, there is a wonder in it that almost makes up for the beating we are beginning to take at the hands of the professional heavyweight world.”
