Don Bachardy: Christopher Isherwood, Ink wash and graphite on paper, 1976

I personally believe that there is a part of one’s subconscious will that directs one’s life, that there is a part of me that is carrying out long-range schemes. I believe that this part of my will also knows when I shall die, and how much time I’ve got and everything else. I believe it has schemes which often, in my ignorance, I frustrate — schemes which are not always necessarily for the best.
