Born Again

The primary task of creative literature is to rejuvenate our problems. —Witold Gombrowicz
Because we're as old as our problems. And the secret to life isn't found in solving its problems—they're too numerous, too befuddling—but in keeping them new.

So the history of literature is a history of  revisions. Poems, novels: modified advances upon the unsolved mysteries of love and desire, of violence and community and selfhood, of predation and surrender, of language, beauty, humor, and the silence of God.
Each fresh advance rejuvenates the spirit—the mind, the self, whatever—as the comings and goings of each plant and each animal rejuvenate nature.
