    Sometimes I think I can remember a warmth. A closeness. A feeling of being in arms, maybe. Soft hair against my cheek

    leans over our table and turns the sign in the window so that it says CLOSED on the outside. But on our side, perfectly positioned between Mabel’s place and mine, it says OPEN. If this were a short story, it would mean something.

    It takes me a while, usually, to be able to listen. But when I do, I discover the secrets of pollination, that honeybees’ wings beat two hundred times per second. That trees shed their leaves not according to season, but according to rainfall. That before all of us there was something else. Eventually, something will take our place.

    The end of the world never sounded so good.
    I know!
    I kind of want it to happen. Is that bad?
    We could do all that stuff even without the apocalypse.
    Good point.
    So it’s a plan?
    Alia Azmihas quotedlast year
    I know that I am always alone, even when surrounded by people, so I let the emptiness in.

    The most innocent things can call back the most terrible.

    If only lonely were a more accurate word.

    There are many ways of being alone. That’s something I know to be true.

    We were masters of collusion, Gramps and I. In that, at least, we were together

    It wasn’t the ghosts. It was the hauntings that mattered.

    The ghosts told the governess that she would never know love.

    The ghost told Jane Eyre that she was alone.

    The ghost told the Buendía family that their worst fears were right: They were doomed to repeat the same mistakes.

    I learn that I am a tiny piece of a miraculous world.
    Conejo Literariohas quoted2 years ago
    I do not mean the difficulty. I do not mean the sex. I mean there are too many failings. Not enough hope. Everything is despair. Everything is suffering. What I mean is don’t be a person who seeks out grief. There is enough of that in life.”

    Climb in. No one will know if you stay in bed all day. No one will know if you wear the same sweatpants for the entire month, if you eat every meal in front of television shows and use T-shirts as napkins. Go ahead and listen to that same song on repeat until its sound turns to nothing and you sleep the winter away.

    Each time I thought I may have understood, some line of logic snapped and I was thrust back into not knowing.

    It’s a dark place, not knowing.

    It’s difficult to surrender to.

    But I guess it’s where we live most of the time. I guess it’s where we all live, so maybe it doesn’t have to be so lonely. Maybe I can settle into it, cozy up to it, make a home inside uncertainty.

    Here we are in that spectacular summer. We are different people now, yes, but those girls were magic.
    Dani CyChas quotedyesterday
    Something in me is cracking open, the light coming through is so bright it hurts, and the rest of me is still here, wounded, even though I know it’s all for the best.

    “How many will be enjoying the Cabernet this evening?”

    “All of us,” Javier says, sweeping his arm across the table as though the four of us were a village, a country, the entire world.
