Mind Wide Open

writing & consciousness

I have a lot to say, you just have to ask the right questions.

44139 asked: "I rise from my worst disasters, I turn, I change." -Virginia Woolf (You just quoted a woman who placed a bunch of stones in her dress and drowned herself.) Unfortunately, I don't think you're aware of the context.

Virginia Woolf may have “placed a bunch of stones in her dress and drowned herself,” but I also specified that the quote was from her novel, The Waves.  The line was said by Neville, one of Woolf’s characters, not the author herself.  I didn’t think it necessary to write it all out.  Not everyone is familiar with the character, but many do know of the author and her writing.  

I think you’re the one who is not aware of the context, nor her literary work.

Unfortunately.

Now all you can do is wait. It must be hard for you, but there is a right time for everything. Like the ebb and flow of tides. No one can do anything to change them. When it is time to wait, you must wait.
