"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

For me, mostly. And You.

This post is happening because I can not find any notepad paper near me if it meant saving my life. Which is sad, because I'm at my desk. And this is my Barnes & Noble shopping list. Which I can access while I'm at B & N, today or tomorrow, instead of scrambling to find a little piece of paper anyway. AND, now you can all go buy these exceedingly interesting books too and we can all read them!
