The space of writing is to be traversed, not pierced; writing constantly posits meaning, but always in order to evaporate it. - Roland Barthes

I kind of really, really enjoy reading for class. I also just read some of Thoreau's Journals, and he talked about how he accidentally had a snake in his stomach but then it wanted water so it went up his throat and he yanked that snake right out and never had snake problems again, so basically Thoreau is a lot cooler than I thought he was.
