“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearnings. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness.

Tell yourself that you tasted as many as you could.”

Louise Erdrich, "The Painted Drum"

I'm sitting on the rocks by the beach outside of the most magnificent house I've ever been inside. The slate grey Atlantic is lapping the shore. The breeze is cool and the sun is bright. Everything is perfect and beautiful. I had no idea how much I missed this.

I guess I do know where I'm from after all.
