wild desire #augustbreak2013


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Novelist James Joyce once articulated an
extreme wish that other writers have probably felt but never actually said.
“The demand that I make of my reader,” said Joyce, “is that he should
devote his whole life to reading my works.” Was he being mischievous?
Maybe. But he never apologized or issued a retraction. Your assignment,
Virgo, is to conjure up your own version of that wild desire: a clear
statement of exactly what you really, really want in all of its extravagant
glory. I think it’ll be healthy for you to identify this pure and naked
longing. (P.S. I’m not implying that you should immediately try to get it
fulfilled, though. For now, the important thing is knowing what it is.)
