desire . . .


i've been spending so much time making films that my reading has lapsed. i am just now reading Victor Vitanza's Enculturation piece, "Abandoned to Writing: Notes Toward Several Provocations."

and i find this . . .

"I will skip (rocks across the sur-face) what 'we' might want writing to want. Writing just wants. Wants, W.ants. It's not that writing wants what 'we' want when 'we' know what 'we' want! Rather, WRITING WANTS! Just WANTS."

seriously.
