That is a journey no one can end with the change of a channel. Enduring magic."

If you have the expectation that I have to be a certain way, then I feel the obligation to be that way.The truth is I am bot what you want me to be.

47. "What reading does, ultimately, is keep alive the dangerous and exhilarating idea that a life is not a sequence of lived moments, but a destiny...the time of reading, the time defined by the author's language resonating in the self, is not the world's time, but the soul's. The energies that otherwise tend to stream outward through a thousand channels of distraction are marshaled by the cadences of the prose; they are brought into focus by the fact that it is an ulterior, and entirely new, world that the reader has entered. The free-floating self--the self we diffusely commune with while driving or walking or puttering in the kitchen--is enlisted in the work of bringing the narrative to life. In the process, we are able to shake off the habitual burden of insufficient meaning and flex our deeper natures."
Author: Sven Birkerts

She drove herself mercilessly, and the summer dragged on."
