Everything is biographical…

…Lucien Freud says. What we make, why it is made, how we draw a dog, who it is we are drawn to, why we cannot forget. Everything is collage, even genetics. There is the presence of others in us, even those we have known briefly. We contain them for the rest of our lives, at every border that we cross.”

– from Divisadero, by Michael Ondaatje
