I like thinking underwater… and in the darkness. The most splendid thoughts visit my head in the bathroom at nights. It’s impossible to imagine an infinite quantity of the great ideas that I had during my nine months bathing in warm amniotic fluid.
But my long hard way through the birth canal… my primeval shock when I met with the external world for the first time… It erased this layer of my memory. Completely.
I know that now I can spend all my life attempting to recall… in miserable and unavailing efforts to turn diamond dust into diamonds.
But I have a whole life for it… and I will.
