(to c.o. i dedicate this my humble homage to smeagol / gollum)
"There was a little corner of his mind that was still his own, and light came through it, as though a chink in the dark: light out of the past. It was actually pleasant, I think, to hear a kindly voice agin, bringing up memories of wind, and trees, and sun on the grass,
and such forgotten things."
(and to claudio abbado, rip)
