    One by one, over the months, the other bulbs burn out, and are gone. The first few of these hit Byron hard. He's still a new arrival, still hasn't accepted his immortality. But on through the burning hours he starts to learn about the transience of others: learns that loving them while they're here becomes easier, and also more intense—to love as if each design-hour will be the last.

    Thomas Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow

    I can't go on, I'll go on.

    Samuel Beckett - The Unnamable

    I'm currently reading "The Kite Runner" at the suggestion of a friend, and so far I'm enjoying it immensely.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I just read an article in National Geographic about the depopulation of North Dakota, resulting in hundreds of old, deserted homes, called "see through houses". It was fascinating, and very sad.

    What are you torn about? The Chronicles of Narnia is a wonderful series BTW. I just reread the first 2 books over Christmas break (probably for about the 8th time each) but when I went looking for the 3rd book in the series I couldn't find it...so I guess I'll have to make a trip to the library for it.
