"When I'm traveling and staying in some new place, I have woken up in the middle of the night and have no idea where I am"
“It was like my body had an internal compass, somehow thought it was home"
"that it was back in it's nest, but I wasn't"
"I was missing the anonymity that comes with being 1 person in 8 million back in New York"
“Let me give you a lift back”
“I stayed. It’s been years”
"Suddenly, she was just gone"
"Feeling pain invade me on all sides, I sat down and wept"
"I wanted neither of these scenarios to happen and worried about it like she was still here, like it was an option"
"I saw it and I knew it was important to me somehow, I knew it meant something"
"Several changes of day and night passed, and the orb of night had greatly lessened, when I began to distinguish my sensations from each other"
“Frightened me into silence again”
"The youth and his companion had each of them several names, but the old man had only one, which was father"
“What I knew was fading, the moon as I knew up until now would soon just become an object in the sky with no meaning, a round bright light white thing”
“My universe now was only the present, and being in the present, and the sensations of the present”
“Yesterday it rained, washing away the white frostiness on the trees”
