READIN

Jeremy's journal

Dream is not a revelation. If a dream affords the dreamer some light on himself, it is not the person with closed eyes who makes the discovery but the person with open eyes lucid enough to fit thoughts together. Dream -- a scintillating mirage surrounded by shadows -- is essentially poetry.

Michel Leiris

Spent the morning and evening commutes reading Against the Day in public. I hit on this line, which resonated in my mind -- "Remorse without an object is a doorway to deliverance." -- and then on the next page found the same speaker delivering a teaching that has been in my head ever since the first time I read this book.
