I've made up so many love stories.
Now I feel fictional.
-- Rumi

[some of my favorite entries, by tag: all my little words | story | poem]

"No man," proclaimed Donne, "is an Island," and he was wrong. If we were not islands, we would be lost, drowned in each other's tragedies. We are insulated (a word that means, literally, remember, "made into an island") from the tragedy of others, by our island nature, and by the repetitive shape and form of the stories. The shape does not change: there was a human being who was born, lived, and then, by some means or another, died. There. You may fill in the details from your own experience. As unoriginal as any other tale, as unique as any other life. -- Neil Gaiman
