“If you don’t feel you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, or losing control of the whole thing, then what you’re writing probably isn’t very vital. If you don’t feel that you are writing over your head, why do it? If you don’t have some doubt of your authority to tell the story, then you’re not trying to tell enough.” John Irving

Look at this photograph of a doorway, which I took in the glow of Monet’s water lilies at L’Orangerie, to still yourself.
