Day to day I have to make all sorts of choices about what is good and important and fun, and then I have to live with the forfeiture of all the other options those choices foreclose. And I'm starting to see how as time gains momentum my choices will narrow and their foreclosures multiply exponentially until I arrive at some point on some branch of all life's sumptuous branching complexity at which I am finally locked in and stuck on one path and time speeds me through stages of stasis and atrophy and decay until I go down for the third time, all struggle for naught, drowned by time.

It often takes the collective experience of millions of people over many centuries to learn even what appears upon examination to be a simple and obvious truth, namely, that peace is better than war or love is better than hate."

Rayna doesn't feel the same way; she sees an unknown caller as a doorway to a possible romance."Hello?" she answered seductively."Hey, it's me.""Clea! Are you okay? I've been phone-stalking you for days. What happened? Where have you been?""Sorry, I lost my cell. Everything's okay."

"Did you meet someone amazing at Carnival and get swept off your feet?"I loved that those were the only two options for Rayna: Either something had gone horribly wrong, or I'd gotten wrapped up in a wild, whirlwind romance.I glanced at Sage. "I did meet someone…""I knew it! I want to know everything.""It's kind of a long story.""I've got nothing but time. Details!"
