"But, whatever the reason may be, I find that scene making is my natural way or marking the past. A scene always comes to the top: arranged, representative. This confirms me in my instinctive notion—it is irrational, it will not stand argument—that we are sealed vessels afloat upon what it is convenient to call reality; at some moments, without a reason, without an effort, the sealing matter cracks; in floods reality; that is a scene—for they would not survive entire so many ruinous years unless they were made of something permanent; that is proof of their “reality”. Is this liability of mine to scene receiving the origin of my writing impulse?"

"At times I can go back to St. Ives more completely than I can this morning. I can reach a state where I seem to be watching things happen as if I were there. That is, I suppose that my memory supplies what I had forgotten, so that it seems as if it were happening independently, though I am really making it happen. In certain favorable moods, memories—-what one has forgotten—-come to the top. Now if this is so, is it not possible—I often wonder that things we have felt with great intensity have an existence independent of our minds; are in fact still in existence? And if so, will it not be possible, in time, that some device will be invented by which e can tap them? I see it—-the past—-as an avenue lying behind: a long ribbon of scenes, emotions…I feel that strong emotion must leave its trace; and it is only a question of discovering how we can get ourselves again attached to it, so that we shall be able to live our lives through from the start"
