Quote of the Day, 8/10/06

From Adrienne Rich:
Women’s art, though created in solitude, wells up out of community.

And here's a section from Rich's poem "Victory"...
I guess you're not alone I fear you're alone
There's, of course, poetry:
awful bridge rising over naked air: I first
took it as just a continuation of the road:
"a masterpiece of engineering
praised, etc." then on the radio:
"incline too steep for ease of, etc."
Drove it nonetheless because I had to
this being how— So this is how
I find you: alive and more
