Happy New Year 2019

The sad truth is that certain types of things can’t go backward. Once they start going forward, no matter what you do, they can’t go back the way they were. If even one little thing goes awry, then that’s how it will stay forever.

– Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun

Late December 2018

Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.

– Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
