In the book of my memory, after the first pages, which are almost blank, there is a section headed
Incipit vita nova.
Beneath this heading I find the words which it is my intention to copy into this smaller book, or if not all, at least their meaning.

Dante,La Vita Nuova

Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

Reading Wittgenstein, again, lately.

This notebook of arguments--how else can we name his "books"?--continues to fascinate me. Nevermind I am still learning how to comprehend some of the logic, I find his arguments so very significant to Writing and Literature.

It's not just seeing and knowing what I see and knowing how to say what I mean about what I think I see. It's about the space of seeing and the colloboration of creating the site/sight.

I am no fan of Bertrand Russell. Bad memories from undergraduate study, probably. I think I need to revisit Russell. I think I will.
