"And yet, this craving runs deeper than merely a desire for the new; it is a thirst to find the confirmation that yes, we can and do know ourselves to exist.

I've never met Nathan Vass, but I feel like I already have just from reading his stories. Maybe it's because riding the bus is also a huge part of my life. Maybe it's because I really enjoy the challenge of finding beauty in the monotonous motions of everyday life. The scary thing is, up until a few days ago, I thought I had lost this vitality.
