…far from being “just a few inches from figuring the whole thing out”…

Is it mere fiction to you, or do the “series of lost chances” of which the author speaks revive themselves also at the core of your psyche with fierce vengeance at times?

“No one was to blame for what happened, but that does not make it any less difficult to accept. It was all a matter of missed connections, bad timing, blundering in the dark. We were always in the right place at the wrong time, the wrong place at the right time, always just missing each other, always just a few inches from figuring the whole thing out. That’s what the story boils down to, I think. A series of lost chances. All the pieces were there from the beginning, but no one knew how to put them together.” ~ Paul AusterMoon Palace

Paul Auster on my mind yet once again…

I wonder how many women are this lucky but have also been assured of this determined type of a devotion through actions…

“…once you fell in love with her, you loved her until the day you died.” ~ Paul AusterTimbuktu

“Man in the Dark” or, when we die of a broken heart

“Betty died of a broken heart. Some people laugh when they hear that phrase, but that’s because they don’t know anything about the world. People die of broken hearts. It happens every day, and it will go on happening to the end of time.” ~ Paul Auster, Man in the Dark
