Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn’t something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn’t get in, and walk through it, step by step. – Haruki Murakami

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.

She always had that about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far, and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world. – Joanne Harris

 She whispers, “I’m afraid of falling.” He smiles, I’ll Catch you.”  

Sometimes it’s better to fall back and let things unfold.
