All is Well in the Land of Crickets

Just wanted to share this timely quote. I am aware that the word ‘timely’ may not make sense to you, but trust me. The word fits, snugly.

Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too.
– Lemony Snicket

Found it in Brain Picker’s Literary Jukebox project. Click the link and read with heart pleasing the music.
