“Do I dare disturb the universe?”
“I have measured out my life with coffee spoons. . .”
“There will be time, there will be time/To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;/There will be time to murder and create./ And time for all the works and days of hands/That lift and drop a question on your plate;/Time for you and time for me,/And time yet for a hundred indecisions,/And for a hundred visions and revisions,/Before the taking of a toast and tea.” TS Eliot, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”

This is my all-time favorite poem! I named this blog after this quote from TS Eliot because I ask myself this question every time I write. Do I really want to ask these questions? Do I dare disturb the universe? Yes, I think I will.
