"There are significant moments in everyone’s day that can make literature. You have to be alert to them and pay attention to them." -Raymond Carver

THE BEST TIME OF THE DAY. -RAYMOND CARVER  Cool summer nights. Windows open. Lamps burning. Fruit in the bowl. And your head on my shoulder. These the happiest moments in the day.  Next to the early morning hours, of course. And the time just before lunch. And the afternoon, and early evening hours. But I do love these summer nights. Even more, I think, than those other times. The work finished for the day. And no one who can reach us now. Or ever.

“There is in the soul a desire for not thinking. For being still. Coupled with this a desire to be strict, yes, and rigorous. But the soul is also a smooth son of a bitch, not always trustworthy. And I forgot that.”  ― Raymond Carver, All of Us: The Collected Poems   Remembering Raymond Carver on what would have been his 74th birthday.
