"It is after all so easy to shatter a story. To break a chain of thought. To ruin a fragment of a dream being carried around carefully like a piece of porcelain."I'm feeling swamped by all the little things in life. I need to get my schedule together. Everyday there's another thing to add to my million + 1 list. I really hope all this matters in the end. If it doesn't, I'm going to be mad.
- from God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
Jennifer and I were talking about 2012 and the end of days the other day. There are two things that we deduced:
- We hope it's quick and painless. Like a flash of light. None of that "2012" movie mess. No flooding, fires, meteors, none of that.
- We really hope that we get like a week's notice heads up. That way we can spend the contents of our savings account before we leave. I'd book a cruise to Antarctica. It's $13,000, but you get to see penguins! And polar bears!
