read everything, learn everything?

I get fabulous emails about this project, recommending sources, locations, books, other comments. I love this. Yesterday, this arrived, and it is so spot-on, that somehow it must get included in something I am writing, but in the meantime, I wanted to put it here. ¬†Andrea sent it because it “reminded him of my work” which honours me greatly. It is from Marguerite Yourcenar’s Notebooks and is about her writing of Memoirs¬†of Hadrian.
