Adversaria 1

Ad`ver*sa"ri*a\, n. pl. [L. adversaria (sc. scripta)]  
A miscellaneous collection of notes, remarks, or selections;  
a commonplace book; also, commentaries or notes.

"The deepest thing writing taught me 
was that there was nothing to hold on to. 
Thoughts moved quickly. 
As a writer, I worked hard to grasp them 
as they flooded through me, 
but thoughts moved faster than my hand. 
And thoughts changed. 
I made up reality as I went along. 
Nothing was frozen."
Natalie Goldberg
