W. Kandinsky: "There are no 'musts' in art." T.S. Eliot: "There is no freedom in art." Dostoievski character, after the ancient Middle East epigram: "Everything is permitted." (R-rated weblog. Since one has been advised there is no Literature anymore, or even literature, only writing, one proceeds on the premise that this weblog qualifies as not-meaningless, since it is, or appears to be, a form of "writing."

Invisible Cities / Calvino
Sheer fantasia and it bored me stiff when I first read it, halfway, back in '13, but now that one realizes it has a direct relation to one's own current project, the rewriting of another novel from the '80s, it becomes, at this time, an object of fascination.
