Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold

See enough and write it down, I tell myself, and then some morning when the world seems drained of wonder, some day when I am only going through the motions of doing what I am supposed to do, which is write — on that bankrupt morning I will simply open my notebook and there it will all be, a forgotten account with accumulated interest, paid passage back to the world out there: dialogue overheard.... I imagine, in other words, that the notebook is about other people. But of course it is not. I have no real business with what one stranger said to another....It all comes back.... Remember what it was to be me: that is always the point.” 

― Joan DidionSlouching Towards Bethlehem

Joan, so seemingly strong today.  If you are a lover of books or writing you will enjoy this documentary.
