it chooses you


"This sometimes happens when I am faced with actualities - it's like deja vu, but instead of the sensation that this has happened before, I'm suffused with the awareness that this is happening for the first time."

“I’ve been trying for so long now, for decades, to lift the lid a little bit, to see under the edge of life and somehow catch it in the act—‘it’ being not God (because the word God asks a question and then answers it before there is any chance to wonder) but something along those lines.”

          
 

It Chooses You by Miranda July

I recently revisited an old favorite book, and found it just as moving the second time around (which for me at least is a rare thing)

    1. It's so killer man!! "no one belongs.." is also really solid but I definitely she really has something going for her when she writes non-fiction
