“you wonder what I am doing? well, so do i, in truth. days seem to dawn, suns to shine, evenings to follow, and then i sleep. what i have done, what i am doing, what i am going to do, puzzle and bewilder me. have you ever been a leaf and fallen from your tree in autumn and been really puzzled about it? that’s the feeling."
(t.e. lawrence to artist eric kennington, may 1935 )
