"We all believe that we can choose our own path from among the many alternatives. But perhaps it's more accurate to say that we make choices unconsciously. I don't mean that in the fatalistic sense. We're constantly making choices. With the breaths we take every day, with the expression in our eyes, with the daily actions we do over and over, we decide as though by instinct. And so some of us will inevitably find ourselves rolling around in a puddle on some roof in a strange place with a takeout katsudon in the middle of winter, looking up at the night sky, as if it were the most natural thing in the world." -- Banana Yoshimoto, Kitchen
I find myself in that puddle on the roof every day. It's a good place to be.
