The holiday season is upon us. When family gathers together to break bread, knock heads, and mark the candlelit passage of time with mulled wine before the fire.steampunk-eye1

In honor of the season and memory of sweet scents and good company, a few words from pens wiser than my own.

“But what is memory if not the language of feeling, a dictionary of faces and days and smells which repeat themselves like the verbs and adjectives in a speech, sneaking in behind the thing itself, into the pure present, making us sad or teaching us vicariously…”
― Julio Cortázar, Hopscotchred dragon

“Keep busy with survival. Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember nothing stays the same for long, not even pain. Sit it out. Let it all pass. Let it go.”
― May Sartontime dragon

“…I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire…I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it.”
― Faulkner, The Sound & The Furytimetravel1

From all of us at the Nest, wishes to you for a peaceful and memorable Thanksgiving.
