Without his pills, it was the only way to quiet them.
2) She leaned back into her leather couch, fingering the collar of an Italian silk blouse, with a 60-yr old scotch still coating her tongue, as the fiery blink of the world's eye turned it all to dust. And in her last moments, she felt unsatisfied.
3) "Did you hear about that little boy that was shot?" the cashier asked, grasping my lack of focus while counting the cold metal coins scattered across my bleach white palm.
"He was my son," I replied blankly, taking my coffee from the counter.

I hear someone else mention one, or I see someone in a movie drinking one, or I thinly carve and eat a slice of parmesan cheese—which I used to always drink with wine. And then I think, I want a glass of wine. And I consider it. And I can taste it.

“Change is always a scary thing. We try to imagine various scenarios to prepare ourselves, like Jacob did with his hypotheticals. But when you find yourself in circumstances that you never thought possible, even if frequently imagined, when the consequences of those impossible, fantasy-tinted circumstances become real, it can be paralyzing.”
L.E. Flinders, The Wolves Within Our Walls

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
Martin Luther King Jr., I Have a Dream: Writings and Speeches That Changed the World

“If the Party could thrust its hand into the past and say of this or that event, it never happened—that, surely, was more terrifying than mere torture and death.”
George Orwell, 1984
