A Basin in the Mind

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

And when she gained the privacy of her own little shack she stayed on her knees so long she forgot she was there herself. There is a basin in the mind where words float around on thought and thought on sound and sight. Then there is a depth of thought untouched by words, and deeper still a gulf of formless feelings untouched by thought.

- Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God, 1937

Basin in the mind. Translated in tagalog - malaking tansan sa kukote. :)
