I haven’t been around much because the only posts I seem to be able to come up with these days is whining about the same thing and I don’t believe anyone, including myself, needs to hear more of that. Everyone is struggling right now. There is so much tragedy in the world, so many people going through such hard times, and my crap is completely trivial compared to that.

Traditionally, August is the nadir of my year when the summer malaise is at its worst. Now that fall is on the horizon, I’m hoping I’ll get over myself a bit more. Until then, about all I have to offer is random quotes of the day.

Random quote of the day:

“I hold this to be the highest task of a bond between two people: that each should stand guard over the solitude of the other.”

—Rainer Maria Rilke, Rilke on Love and Other Difficulties (tr. John J. L. Mood)
