"It's so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone."Steinbeck always had a knack for phrasings that somehow captured my mood. Looks like nothing's changed, as this is pretty much how I feel tonight: thankful for having had light in the first place, yet sad that it has now gone dark.
John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent
There are days when I wish this life thing made more sense than it does. Today is one of them.
