Who will remember happiness? I can recall that they are dead. I know that heaven cracked one day, And only God knows what they said. Allen Tate

“Cracks especially. You have to be careful of the cracks.. Sometimes they are disguised as something else. A doorway, or a smile or even a winking eye. And if you fall through them, you never know were you will end up.”
― Isobelle Carmody, Greylands

To get the walkthrough, you have to take the sponge from Nanny Ogg’s pantry and stick it in the ear of the troll with the tutu, then take the lumps and put them in the pouch with the zombie’s razor.

the GEM COLLECTION 2018

I am at the ship’s prow. I am no longer the suicide with her raft and paddle. Herr Doktor! I’ll no longer die to spite you, you wallowing seasick grounded man.

Anne Sexton (1928-1974), U.S. poet. “The Doctor of the Heart.”

“Now that I could not go back I was not sure, after all, that I wished to go forward. It was a miserable sensation.” Anna Freeman, The Fair Fight

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

Magnets

I promised myself never to give in
Never to be the hostage of my emotions
Never to let my knees turn to jelly
Never to lust and never to hope
Never to trust nor elope
But your fingertips are magnets
And every piece of my body that you touch
My skin follows, giving in to your warmth
Begging for more, begging for you
I’m letting you take over and control for me
Feverishly, I watch you handle my life
Piecing things together, tearing some apart
And as if you were magic
I sit back and think:
“I am so glad you have my heart”
