--a cold, sick feeling deep down inside--
when you know something is happening that will change you,
and you don't want it to but you can't stop it.
And you know, for the first time, for the very first time,
that there will now be a before and an after, a was and a will be.
And that you will never again be quite the same person you were."
A Northern Light Jennifer Donnelly 2003
They're the kind of moments you might
wish terribly that you could bottle right up.
So you could pour them over on those other days.
Yeah, maybe even especially so you could just pour them all
out on those other days.
You know, those ones that try really, really hard
to make you cry.
My deepest sympathy to my friends Connie, Ken
and Family in the recent passing of his mom.
for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."
