Breathe, keep breathing. Don't lose your nerve" -

Page 266: Shadow Cities

/ Wednesday, April 30, 2014 /

I wanted everything to remain the same. Because this, too, is typical of people who have lost everything, including their roots or their ability to grow new ones. They may be mobile, scattered, nomadic, dislodged, but in their jittery state of transience they are thoroughly stationary. It is precisely because you have no roots that you don’t budge, that you fear change, that you’ll build on anything, rather than look for land.
