this blog is a place for me to gather up all the things that i do & like. little bit of fun, little bit of serious, and little bit of getting healthier everyday.
I know that is essentially nothing in the face of what I need to write,
it’s been so easy today and it makes me so glad.
(I checked, and with what I estimate makes a novel, I’m .004% of the way there! lololol)
Finding the title of a book worked into the content somewhere is like finding the Golden Ticket for me.
"When you play the game of thrones, you win or —"
"WAIT WAIT THERE IT IS, THE TITLE! I LOVE MY LIFE"
I have been seeing a lot of Game of Thrones posts lately, and I want to start watching it, but being a deeply devoted lover of reading, I had to read the book first.
So I started it today and it’s been great so far. Except… BRANNNNNN
She left home, a girl free.
"There is a danger in seeking perfection. I tried it once. It’s not the kind of danger that you feel riding on the back of a motorcycle or standing at the edge of a cliff. It’s the danger of a slow poison, like lead paint or the slow increase in a dose of arsenic. You don’t realize the futility of it until it’s nearly too late. The fear of the breakup was my last dose. It still calls to me sometimes, that siren song of comfort, of what was, of what could have been. I don’t listen, anymore. It’s hard to hear the sound of what might be over the symphony of everything that is right now."
an excerpt from the short memoir i wrote for class earlier this semester. it still feels real and true.
