"i am careful."
"no, you're not."
"well, other people are," she said lightly.
"what's that got to do with it?"
"they'll keep out of my way," she insisted. "it takes two to make an accident."
"suppose you met somebody just as careless as yourself."
"i hope i never will," she answered. "i hate careless people. that's why i like you."

You know how people long to be eternal. But they die with every day that passes.... They change, they deny, they contradict--and they call it growth. At the end there's nothing left, nothing unreversed or unbetrayed; as if there had never been an entity, only a succession of adjectives fading in and out of an unformed mass. How do they expect a permanence which they have never held for a single moment?

...and I knew more than she thought I knew about the meaning of religion, the hunger of the human heart for that which is not and can never be, the thirst of the human spirit to conquer and transcend the implacable limitations of human life.

October 1st. Fall is finally descending upon this little town. For reasons I cannot discuss right now, I have been absent for too long (although you can probably guess from my last post, oh...from August).

I miss everyone lots and lots and lots and hope you're all enjoying the leaves crunch beneath your feet as much as I am ♥

I'm not sure how long this'll last. Perhaps longer than I say.

But indeed. I am back. ;)

I should have done this sooner. I really need this hiatus so I don't have to worry about LJ while I'm with my family in China, it complicates things. I get back on August 4th. So 'til then, adios amigos. Enjoy summer :)

.HIATUS.|am back|

Alrighty. I'm boarding the plane to NYC at 11:30pm tomorrow, so I'll be gone for the next few days, until June 30th. In case you still don't know why that is- Last year, our highschool symphony submitted a recording and was chosen as one of the three symphonies worldwide to perform at Carnegie Hall in NYC, and to compete for the top spot. So here we are, ready with Dvořák's Symphony No.9, "From the New World", all 50 glorious minutes. ;)

I'm so very excited now :D. Wish us luck, and talk to you all when I get back ♥♥♥
