so that’s how we live our lives

“No matter how deep and fatal the loss, no matter how important the thing that’s stolen from us – that’s snatched right out of our hands – even if we are left completely changed, with only the outer layer of skin from before, we continue to play out our lives this way, in silence.”

-From The Sputnik Sweetheart, by Haruki Murakami

It’s not his best book, but Murakami made some of his best observations in this one. It resonated. It’s a good read for savoring the bittersweetness of love lost.
