An Intrinsic Exquisite


too much




"Living outside of time, it's not so easy to be happy in the ordinary sense of a kind of wasteful self indulgence. But there's another kind of happiness, a kind of rock, quartz, shiny, penetrating, reliable that settles inside, a kind of comprehension.

"Yeah. And me, I can dance all night, swim for miles and I like thoughts that are so long that they might last for years."
