i sat in silence

Whoa, two days of silence. GUILTY! I am guilty. I’d rather not pour out some excuse or try and justify my non-posting actions; I don’t have any excuses, I should have posted. Yes, I’ve been busy, but I should make time for this. It’s just hard to want to make time or to try and focus on my writing when all I do is click for jobs. Alas, back in that grind-o-thangs. It is a horrible, horrible grind. But it is necessary! And sometimes you just have to bite your lip and jump right in.
Alas, I wish I had thoughts of my own to share, but I have nothing of importance. I do, however, have this wonderful quote I just found:
“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being ‘in love’ which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.” – St. Augustine
