"It’s like you’re this small container…"
Here’s an interesting interview with Mary Gaitskill. I liked this bit a lot:
The mind decays, the ability to express oneself decays, and there’s a way in which you give way to the vastness. It’s like you’re this small container, and when that begins to crack, it’s horrible in a way because you don’t want yourself to crack, but on the other hand, you become helpless before something more awesome.
