Future Perfect

If it seems slow, wait for it. It will surely come. It will not delay.

The only person that should be pardoning anybody is him. Hopefully, the film will bring to the fore what an extraordinary human being he was and how appalling (his treatment was). It’s a really shameful, disgraceful part of our history.”

One of my all time favorite things to do is to read what authors write in the dedications of their books. It’s not uncommon to find me traipsing through a bookstore and reading the dedications — not the first page — as many do. 

I  find it sheds so much light on the author’s voice in just a few intimate words and  I  find it plain interesting to see what they’ll use that limited space to say. After finishing the arduous rollercoaster that is completing a book, who it is that comes to mind. (I’ll be honest, the grammatical correctness of this last sentence seems wrong. Oh well.) 

But this past Sunday I came upon one that seemed particularly fitting given all the festivities of this past weekend. 

It read:

for the sake of whose difference

I would gladly give up all the sameness in the world

“I have this vision: That I would finally come and find you. Scattered pieces of distance would not stand in my way. Not needing words; the barest of glimpses would suffice for you and me.”

M: I feel like I’m not allowed to think this because of my job…but honestly, why is McDonald’s so good?
C: That just reassures me that as a chef you have good taste.

Seriously though, I think there are few things out there as consistently perfect and delicious as McD’s fries and an Oreo McFlurry.

And a ShackBurger.  But obviously that’s in its own league.

“Kafka is a ‘writer of absence’, describing a world that remains religious in its structure but in which the central place belonging to God is empty.”
