For today I picked a quote from a book I haven’t actually read yet (The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath). I encountered the quote years ago and it struck a chord with me, and I’ve always remembered it.
“Yes, my consuming desire is to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, barroom regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all this is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always supposedly in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yes, God, I want to talk to everybody as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night…”
And of course, if you don’t want to do this tag, no pressure at all 😀
