Don’t try.

Yoda said “Do or do not… there is no try.” Bukowski simply said, “don’t try.”

The difference is David Carradine in “Kung Fu” and “Kill Bill” (or heaven forbid Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi): inspiration versus desperation.

From the awesome Letters of Note:

In a letter to good friend, fellow poet, and founder of New York Quarterly magazine William Packard in 1990, then-70yr-old Charles Bukowski discusses the art of writing, reiterating his belief that a writer’s words and ideas should come naturally, and not be forced.

For more information, links and a typed transcript see Letters of Note, Don’t try.

Astronaut watches the Earth from an ISS porthole: perfect cover for a nonexistent sf novel

Home from Above

Home from Above

From Astronomy Picture of the Day for 2010 November 15, this photo titled “Home from Above”. From that website:

Explanation: There’s no place like home. Peering out of the windows of the International Space Station (ISS), astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson takes in the planet on which we were all born, and to which she would soon return. About 350 kilometers up, the ISS is high enough so that the Earth’s horizon appears clearly curved. Astronaut Dyson’s windows show some of Earth’s complex clouds, in white, and life giving atmosphere and oceans, in blue. The space station orbits the Earth about once every 90 minutes. It is not difficult for people living below to look back toward the ISS. The ISS can frequently be seen as a bright point of light drifting overhead just after sunset. Telescopes can even resolve the overall structure of the space station. The above image was taken in late September from the ISS’s Cupola window bay. Dr. Dyson is a lead vocalist in the band Max Q.

Over on Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow passed along:

Madeleine Robins called this picture of ISS astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson watching the spin far below, “The perfect cover for the perfect unwritten/unread SF novel I wanted to read when I was thirteen.” Exactly right.

“Exactly right” is exactly right. It’s an amazing photo of beautiful subjects, and I wish I could be there, or as a close second-best, read a novel set in that amazing place.
