p.83 When you’re young you prefer the vulgar months, the fullness of the seasons. As you grow older you learn to like the in-between times, the months that can’t make up their minds. Perhaps it’s a way of admitting that things can’t ever bear the same certainty again.

 extra, scribbled on the same page:
“and if you don’t like these ironies, I have others.”

“The sky is a theater of possibilities. I’m not romanticising.”

finally, later, Chris adds:
“nothing exists except upon an assumed foundation of absence.” (Jacques Lacan)
