“You swam in a river of chance and coincidence. You clung to the happiest accidents—the rest you let float by.”
David Wroblewski, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

“Life was a swarm of accidents waiting in the treetops, descending upon any living thing that passed, ready to eat them alive. You swam in a river of chance and coincidence. You clung to the happiest accidents- the rest you let float by.”
David Wroblewski, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
tags: life

“Just when normal life felt almost possible - when the world held some kind of order, meaning, even loveliness (the prismatic spray of light through an icicle; the stillness of a sunrise), some small thing would go awry and the veil of optimism was torn away, the barren world revealed. They learned, somehow, to wait those times out. There was no cure, no answer, no reparation.”
David Wroblewski, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
