How haunting are these abandoned phone booths?

It almost seems like a graveyard of sorts, doesn't it?

Among the smoke and fog of a December afternoon
You have the scene arrange itself — as it will seem to do—
With ‘I have saved this afternoon for you’…
T. S. Eliot, from “Portrait of a Lady

Writers end up writing about their obsessions. Things that haunt them; things they can’t forget; stories they carry in their bodies waiting to be released
-Natalie Goldberg

I Once Dated A Writer

Writers are forgetful,
but they remember everything.
They forget appointments and anniversaries,
but remember what you wore,
how you smelled,
on your first date…
They remember every story you’ve ever told them - 
like ever,
but forget what you’ve just said.
They don’t remember to water the plants
or take out the trash,
but they don’t forget how
to make you laugh.

Writers are forgetful 
they’re busy 
the important things.

Happy Escapes

Novels aren’t just happy escapes; they are slivers of people’s souls, nailed to the pages, dripping ink from veins of wood pulp. Reading the right one at the right time can make all the difference.
-Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians series
