Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.
Anna Quindlen, Every Last One
This has upset me more that I could have imagined. I’m really going to miss you. These words seem too few and too complacent, but I honestly can’t explain how it has affected me right now.
I ignored your aura but it grabbed me by the hand, like the moon pulled the tide, and the tide pulled the sand.
Talib Kweli, Beautiful
