In case you needed some perspective...

Meg over at The Wild and Wily Ways of a Brunette Bombshell posted this today, and it knocked me over. It's been a long time since I read Salinger, and I forgot how incredible he is...Read this and stew in it for the rest of the night.

"...among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and sickened by human behavior. you're by no means alone on that score, you'll be excited and stimulated to know. many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. you'll learn from them--if you want to. just as someday, if you have something of offer, someone will learn something from you. it's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. and it isn't education. it's history. it's poetry."

J.D. Salinger - The Catcher in The Rye

That Meg is like the the Mariano Rivera of blogs. I'm not kidding. Lights out. Read the next quote. Holy Mother of Mickey Mantle.
