Bluets 

Live blogging/reading Maggie Nelson’s Bluets:

“We don’t get to choose what or whom we love, I want to say. We just don’t get to choose.”

“I have been trying, for some time now, to find dignity in my loneliness. I have been finding this hard to do.”

“We cannot read the darkness. We cannot read it. It is a form of madness, albeit a common one, that we try.”

“‘Why is the sky blue?’ —A fair enough question, and one I have learned the answer to several times. Yet every time I try to explain it to someone or remember it myself, it eludes me. Now I like to remember the question alone, as it reminds me that my mind is essentially a sieve, that I am mortal.”
