wished you were here..
by chance of coursework, i was reading monette's 'borrowed time' on the trip to hualien - an exhaustively depressing journey that made the skies grayer and the clouds looming above the mountains heavier than they already were. i loved what rog wrote in paul's journal:"if later on, as we read this, we might think, 'how happy we were then!' at least we'll have that. that as we lived them, these moments, we knew they were important, and that's all there is."
