“Critter: I was fairly relieved when Sea took off on her own. She was wearing some two-sizes-too-small T-shirt, practically forcing my eyes to home in on “the girls,” and all I could think was I’m going to turn into a pillar of salt.”
Lara M. Zeises, Anyone but You

“I`m a mess. I know, I know – what`s new? But this is different. (…).
This is you being gone.
This is you being everywhere, except where I need you to be.”
Lara M. Zeises, Bringing up the Bones

“Depressions are a lot like snowflakes – no two are exactly alike. Some people get drunk and puke up the badness into a public toilet. Some find a willing stranger and fuck their brain out in the backseat of a rusty Camaro. The Hole requires a lot less energy. In the Hole, time doesn`t exist.”
Lara M. Zeises, Bringing up the Bones
