A Poet Reflects

"I like what I do.  Some writers have said in print that they hated writing and it was just a chore and a burden. I certainly don’t feel that way about it.  Sometimes it’s difficult.  You know, you always have this image of the perfect thing which you can never achieve, but which you never stop trying to achieve.  But I think … that’s your signpost and your guide. You’ll never get there, but without it you won’t get anywhere."
—Cormac McCarthy,  interview with Oprah Winfrey, June 1, 2008
