from my starbucks cup:
"childhood is a strange country. it's a place you come from or go to - at least in your mind. for me it has an endless, spellbound something it it that feels remote. it's like a little sealed-vault country of cake breath and grass stains where what you do instead of work is spin until you're dizzy."
