"Occasionally we let someone in, we open the folds of our insecurity and give access to the darkest parts of us. We hand over the key, and it’s terrifying. And sometimes they bump into a raw nerve, they say a callous insensitive remark, they ridicule a strange notion we have, they poke at our dreams just a bit. It hurts pretty bad and we push them out and fold up fast. We remind ourselves, “This is why I don’t let anyone in.” And we run.

It’s right here that most people apologize like crazy. They feel terrible. They were trying to figure out how to navigate the labyrinth of your wonderful story. It’s like holding a tiny flash light in a cave of a new world. They didn’t mean to provoke those old wounds. They didn’t mean to poke fun at your dreams. They considered it an honor that they held the key, even for a few frenzied moments.

Intimacy takes work, trust, wounds, hurts, sculpting in the dark: and that takes time. It takes more than a single chance. Of course we can close the doors, at any second, when we know it just won’t work. But there are many opportunities if we had trusted a little longer, reset the tempo, and spoke up louder: it would’ve been okay. Bridges would be built. New stories are made. You find your hand closing around theirs. They begin to traverse the folds of your heart with ease, and they learn to say those things which give life, which give freedom, which grow dreams. Intimacy is formed out of stumbling, but further down the path: there is so much light, so much laughter, so many steps to the horizon together."

"I came to this city to escape. This city is full of towers to climb and climb, and to climb faster and faster, marveling at the design and dreaming at the view from the top. At the top there is a keen wind and everything is so far away it’s impossible to say what is what. There is no one to discuss it with. Cats can count on the fire brigade and Rapunzel was lucky with her hair. Wouldn’t it be nice to sit on the ground again? I came to this city to escape."

#BookADayUK 21: One where I fell in love with the narrator Claire

Fell in love with the narrator? I’m going to have to dig deep into my brain for this one… I’d have to say Arya Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire series was one of my favourite narrators so far. Does she count as a narrator though? Or just a POV character?

Do you ever have those books that you start reading but then you lose enthusiasm for then because there’s all the other books you want to read but then like you’re neglecting this one and you’ve started it so you should finish it and while trying to read it you read a different book and basically feel like you cheated on the book and just I’m so sorry books ;-;

I guess maybe the narrator in HP Lovecraft’s short story The Outsider (from the collection of short stories Necronomicon: The Best Weird Tales. Can’t honestly say I’ve read many bookworms I liked all that much.
