“Time is like this boat that you are on. You can't see who is steering it, but it is taking you to weird unknown and sometimes awful or terrifying places.”

“Life is all about change. We cling to what we know and what we have, and then we lose it, and then we regret not having it and try to replace it by finding and changing to something else.”
Lesley Choyce, The Book of Michael

“She said that in writing anything, you must be perfectly honest.”
Lesley Choyce, The Book of Michael
