the carrier bag theory of diary-keeping

What sort of diary should I like mine to be? Something loose knit and yet not slovenly, so elastic that it will embrace anything, solemn, slight or beautiful that comes into my mind. I should like it to resemble some deep old desk, or capacious hold-all, in which one flings a mass of odds and ends without looking them through.

- Virginia Woolf, A Writer's Diary, quoted on Goodreads

I have been neglecting this blog shamefully, seduced away by the twin silver globes of Tumblr and GoodReads. I should fix that.
