Quote of the day

Charles Cowling


“I suppose it’s a cliché to say you’re glad to be alive, that life is short, but to say you’re glad to be not dead requires a specific intimacy with loss that comes only with age or deep experience. One has to know not simply what dying is like, but to know death itself, in all its absoluteness.”

    Lovely article Charles. “A good cry is like a carwash for the soul,” will be using that quote in the future!
