Nicola’s Recent Updates

“Here’s the thing about nihilism. It’s all about letting go. It’s about believing that nothing matters so much you want to hurt over it. It’s like Buddhism without the peace. Just let that shit go. I believe in it because I've had to let everybody go. My dad. My mom. Our dogs. My little brother. Jobs. Money. Life is one long series of losses. The one constant in life isn’t death or taxes. It’s loss. And if you believe nothing matters, loss doesn’t hurt nearly so bad. Attachment is nothing but pain.”
Nicola Rendell, Professed

“I shake my head, smiling and feeling a wave of tears of relief spring to my eyes. “My pleasure, Anand. May you be eternally blissful too.”
Nicola Rendell, Hail Mary

“His hand gripped mine hard. It said you’re welcome and thank you and this is all so freaking joyful there are no words. For a minute, maybe more, we just lay there, side by side, hand in hand, until finally Max rolled toward me, said, “You be the little spoon,” and pulled the sheets up over us.”
Nicola Rendell, So Good
