“Was it hard to watch people go?
No. Breathing afterward, every day, was harder.”
Meg Gardiner, The Dirty Secrets Club
tags: life

“Running cured almost anything. It eased pain; it exhilarated; it served as penance and validation. It turned lone wolf into a compliment. Running was objective – the stop-watch never lied. Races judged competitors on how long and hard they could run fast, not on a coach’s decision to play favorites with the starting lineup. Running was pure.”
Meg Gardiner, Ransom River

“I've been an investigator longer than you've been playing Vulcan Mind Meld with dead people - Tang”
Meg Gardiner, The Dirty Secrets Club

“neatness can be carried too far, so that the work begins to seem fussy and overwrought, anal compulsive, unspontaneous, and remembering that, on the other hand, mess is no adequate alternative.”
