I Just Like the Damn Photo, Okay?

Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy, a portrait of two lovers.

"A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. It’s as though it had all just come into existence.
I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."
--Christopher Isherwood, A Single Man

Nice house, too.

Yes, isn't it? I think Isherwood may be my favorite writer, along with Vonnegut, of course.

I live my life for moments that come every day, if I choose to open my eyes and see. I have moments of clarity if I am present.

Syd,
You are right--PRESENT is KEY.

Love you lots.

... and when those moments of clarity arrive, sometimes they confirm what you already knew, if you let yourself believe ...
