Heaving Bricks: January 21, 2016

21st Jan, 1922
A brick wall at Sissinghurst
[to Morgan Forster]
 Writing is still like heaving bricks over a wall; so you must interpret with your usual sympathy.  I should like to growl to you about all this damned lying in bed and doing nothing, and getting up and writing half a page and going to bed again.  I've wasted 5 whole years (I count) doing it; you you must call me 35 -- not 40 -- and expect rather less form me.  Not that I haven't picked up something from my insanities and all the rest.  Indeed I suspect they've done instead of religion.  But this is a difficult point.
