...Семь дней тому назад, Вздохнувши, я прости сказала миру, Но душно там, и я пробралась в сад Взглянуть на звезды и потрогать лиру.
Анна Ахматова, “Ночью...” (отрывок), 1918 г.

"Maybe we're all full of an empty plain but then with every memorable moment, good and bad, there's another tree planted. Then another then another then another. And maybe we convince ourselves that, as we become increasingly tangled in the mass of trees and divots that are us, life is about looking for the clearing, the bit where all of it breaks. But maybe that's the secret. Maybe the secret is that it never breaks. Not really. It never breaks, and the only think that's really gratifying is pressing the bark against your face and delighting in the thought that this is me, and this is real, and this is true. Just lying down in the undergrowth, in a wood made of all of you, of every joy and every terror, and saying this is me, and this, and this. The difference between feeling lost and feeling fine isn't a change in circumstances, it's a change in behavior."
- "The Things We Don't See", Savannah Brown
Next I read Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere.
I am sad to say…I didn’t really enjoy this. I REALLY WANTED TO. I was pretty hyped up with all the reviews but the plot of the book couldn’t hold up my expectations (too predictable). The world building is cool though. I thought I had attempted to read this book something like 10 years ago but it was completely unfamiliar until I got to the floating night market bit and I was like oh I remember this!! Perhaps the story is not my cup of tea…although I really enjoyed How the Marquis Got His Coat Back! It was a very fun read, I liked it much more than the main novel, surprisingly. Also! This is the first hard copy book that I’ve finished reading in a while so there’s that.
It’s hard selling my friends on Destiny because it’s currently at a state of “Well, you just Had To Be There I guess”

I literally can’t stop reading. I find myself diving into fantasy worlds as an escape. I finish one book and immediately pick up another.
The Design of Everyday Things by Don Norman
“Perhaps that is what it is like being with other people. Perhaps even people you like and admire immensely can make you see the world in ways you would rather not.”
