Rationalization is a cover-up, a process of providing one’s emotions with a false identity, of giving them spurious explanations and justifications – in order to hide one’s motives, not just from others, but primarily from oneself. The price of rationalizing is the hampering, the distortion, and, ultimately, the destruction of one’s cognitive faculty. Rationalization is a process not of perceiving reality, but of attempting to make reality fit one’s emotions.
Bjartur declared that he had never denied that there was much that was strange in nature. I consider that there’s nothing wrong in believing in elves even though their names aren’t on the parish register, he said. It hurts no one, yes and even does you good rather than harm; but to believe in ghosts and ghouls-that I contend is nothing but the remains of popery and hardly fit for a Christian to give even a moment’s consideration. He did his utmost to persuade the women to accept his views on these matters.
To seek out making films that are unique and insightful, boundary-pushing and genre-bending, and not films that fit into the neat, little boxes that people want (expect) women to be making.

And I feel I am doing good work, and I’m finally getting to see who I really am.
I don’t like to put tags on my music. I leave that to others. Seems like some people see me as the founder of space disco, although that’s a bit weird since there were lots of music from the late 70s and early 80s that easily fits into this genre. I can understand why we need genres, but I don’t feel comfortable using any on my own music.
I would rather have a young fellow too much than too little dressed; the excess on that side will wear off, with a little age and reflection; but if he is negligent at twenty, he will be a sloven at forty, and stink at fifty years old. Dress yourself fine where others are fine, and plain where others are plain; but take care always that your clothes are well made and fit you, for otherwise they will give you a very awkward air.
Every once in a while a messy character who manifests a REAL body emerges, for instance, Lisbeth Salander – and certainly commercial genre fiction is full of examples of real bodied sexual encounters or violence encounters – but for the most part, and particularly if you are a woman or minority author, your characters’ bodies have to fit a kind of norm inside a narrow set of narrative pre-ordained and sanctioned scripts.
