“There is only one way to survive here. And that is not to imagine anything.
As long as you are here, at least, picture my face if you ever start to imagine something, and say to yourself, ‘ No, don’t do that. Imagining things can be fatal.’ These are my golden words of advice to you. Leave the imagining to someone else.”—
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
I might even finish this book; having taken a break from it to read Colorblind by Tim Wise, Blink and Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, and 2/3rds of Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go (which I shall be returning to tomorrow morning on the bus)
I think I’d better call it at two movies tonight; given the progression here I think I’d end up having to go with something like Atonement for a third movie and I really don’t think I could deal with that on a work night.
