“They're ghosts, surely, and Rabbit absolutely believes in them. There are things in the world, strange machinations of physics and chemistry,queer intersections of biology and theology, that Rabbit hasn't the slightest interest in assuming he'll ever understand or be able to solve. They're simply there to be believed in, and Rabbit is a born believer. He wants to believe. He has always thought of life as pregnant with possibility-- a freak twister or wardrobe the only thing separating him from another world-- so ghosts, spirits, aliens and supreme beings coexist within Rabbit with ease. There's a kind of beauty in accepting the possibility, if not the plausibility, of everything imaginable.”
Kate Racculia, Bellweather Rhapsody

“Though maybe that's all life ever is. Unimaginable, until it's happening to you.”
Kate Racculia, Bellweather Rhapsody

“The point is that it might open a part of you that's always been closed. The point is you might make yourself heard. You might find you have a beautiful and terrible - you have a power... We make music to - to find each other in the dark. And I have to believe the point is that we don't - we don't ever stop calling out.”
Kate Racculia, Bellweather Rhapsody
