“I am reminded of an image...that living with a terminal disease is like walking on a tightrope over an insanely scary abyss. But that living without disease is also like walking on a tightrope over an insanely scary abyss, only with some fog or cloud cover obscuring the depths a bit more -- sometimes the wind blowing it off a little, sometimes a nice dense cover.”
Nina Riggs, The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying

“Sometimes I'm sad about everything; the way my grilled cheese sandwich tastes, how nice my socks feel, a song John is playing in the kitchen. One time he puts on this goofy Loudon Wainwright song that was on a mix tape I used to listen to during my commute from the boys' school in Bethesda back into the District when we were newly married and everything was about to begin and it makes me burst into tears about the shortness of everything.”
Nina Riggs, The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying

“Sometimes the most important thing is knowing when to quit. Sometimes being heroic is knowing when to say enough is enough.”
Nina Riggs, The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying
