Madonna della Rocca, Taormina, Sicily

Sometime in the ancient past, this sacred mountain cave became a monastery. An Arab traveller mentions the site as early as 1154 AD. By 1640, the cave had been transformed into an elaborate chapel, “Madonna of the Rock.”

The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.

Writing is something that you don’t know how to do. You sit down and it’s something that happens, or it may not happen. So, how can you teach anybody how to write? It’s beyond me, because you yourself don’t even know if you’re going to be able to. I’m always worried, well, you know, every time I go upstairs with my wine bottle. Sometimes I’ll sit at that typewriter for fifteen minutes, you know. I don’t go up there to write. The typewriter’s up there. If it doesn’t start moving, I say, well this could be the night that I hit the dust.

—Charles Bukowski (via observando)

Enter the ruins of your heart, and learn the meaning of humility.
