A Little Wisdom from St. E

Truth is not that which can be demonstrated by the aid of logic. If orange-trees are hardy and rich in fruit in this bit of soil and not that, then this bit of soil is what is truth for orange-trees. If a particular religion, or culture, or scale of values, if one form of activity rather than another, brings self-fulfillment to a man, releases the prince asleep within him unknown to himself, then that scale of values, that culture, that form of activity, constitute his truth. Logic, you say? Let logic wangle in its own explanation of life.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Wind, Sand and Stars (1939)

Busy Life. No Write.

There are good problems, and there are bad problems. Lately, I've got too much other good and interesting work to do, so my writing has slowed down a bit. But fortunately, I've continued to work in my books. Here's another sample from Book Seven.

As always, these spreads are also with all of their little siblings on the Book Seven page.
