day 78

i need a post so i post a paragraph written by vesna goldsworthy, taken from her book chernobyl strawberries:

That, comrades, is the real opium of the masses: the belief that destiny and not you is uniquely responsible for our happiness; the obstinate belief that love will conquer all. It takes a lifetime to shake off.

again i've been reading slowly and have only gotten up to page thirty. i've also been writing bits and pieces and still think that the overall quality improves. my plan for tomorrow is getting ahead with my open mike story.
