Sylvia Plath and her words

I like her words although at times they are too sad for me to take.

Here are a few of them...

"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt."
(I wish I had this one tattooed onto my hands)

"The man creates a pseudonym and hides behind it like a worm."

"There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them."
(claire, this one is for you)

"Out of the ash I rise with my red hair and eat men like air."
(and this one makes me smile)

please keep doing what you are doing. doubting yourself is part of the artistic deal you make with yourself, but just wanted to let you know your photos make me smile.

Okay, for the record, the comment I left that was deleted by some red-headed blog administrator wasn't the one to which Jessica replied.

As you were.

I love the Bell Jar! Depressing, true. But such beautiful words.
