“I came here because it's pine-dark and the ocean is wild. The kind of quiet-noise you need when there's too much going on in your head. Like the water and the woods are doing all the feeling, and I can hang out, quiet as a headstone, in a between place. A blank I can bear.”
Amy McNamara, Lovely, Dark and Deep

“So this is life. Love. We spend all this time reaching for each other and mostly we end up hurting each other until it's over.”

“I wish I believed him. He's looking at me like he can see where I begin.”
