"Mothers are all slightly insane."
-J. D. Salinger
One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.
No matter how careful you are, there’s going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn’t experience it all. There’s that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should’ve been paying attention. Well, get used to that feeling. That’s how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice.
Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends.
