a snippet from paul auster,'moon palace'

"Occasionally,I jotted down some of these observations in my notebook, but for the most part I found little inclination to write,not wanting to remove myself from my surroundings in any serious way. I understood that I had already spent too much of my life living through words, and if this time was going to have any meaning for me, I would have to live in it as fully as possible, shunning everything but the here and now, the tangible, the vast sensorium pressing down on my skin".
