Man, I needed this this morning.

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
As the day begs the night for mercy love

“ I would say that the moment an object appears in a narrative, it is charged with a special force and becomes like the pole of a magnetic field, a knot in the network of invisible relationships. The symbolism of an object may be more or less explicit, but it is always there. We might even say that in a narrative any object is always magic. ”
