the world changed while I slept

Sunday, July 4, 2010

"The world changed while I slept, and much to my surprise, no one had consulted me. That's how it would always be from that day forward. Of course, that's the way it had been all along. I just didn't know it until that morning. Surprise upon surprise: some good, some evil, most somewhere in between. And always without my consent."

~ Carlos Eire, Waiting for snow in Havana: Confessions of a Cuban Boy, 2003
