"habit is necessary, it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive...one can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration of one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in the big things, and happy in small ways."

The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world.

Yes, I need you, my fairy tale. For you are the only person I can talk to— about the hue of a cloud, about the singing of a thought, and about the fact that when I went out to work today and looked each sunflower in the face, they all smiled back at me with their seeds.

—Vladimir Nabokov in his first letter to his future wife, Vera.
