In Another Time - The Cluster of Words

Okay Dead Beat has been stargazing, and none shines brighter than Mr Berger for getting me to think about the writing process and its place in outer realities.

Listen a while: "The problem of time is like the darkness of the sky. Every event is inscribed in its own time. Events may cluster and their times overlap, but the time in common between events does not extend as law beyond the clustering.
A famine is a tragic cluster of events. To which the Great Plough is indifferent, existing as it does in another time."

The thing is, our writing is in one time, and the world itself in another. I think it is the duty of the writer to at least attempt to merge these impossible times.

Great writing has the Great Plough lighting it up.
