God, we're waiting patiently
For thy will to be done,
To see your hand in everything
Despite the tears that run.
Our hearts are badly broken

Ik ben geen loner. In het gezelschap van mensen die ik graag heb kan ik zo gelukkig zijn dat mijn hoofd bijna ontploft, maar ik kan dat gevoel soms even hard oproepen door net een tijd alleen te zijn.

For many years this book has been haunting me. Demanding that I read it.
