The autumn sun fell slantwise into the yard, making the cobbles bluely shine, and in the porch a pot of geraniums flourished aloft their last burning blossoms of the season. Honestly, this world.

Cillian Murphy has mentioned reading John Banville’s works, so I, trusting his good opinion, have begun reading The Eclipse. Now, about two chapters in, the main character describes seeing ghosts… and is about as fucking nonchalant as he can be about it. I wonder if that in any way informed Cilly’s performance with “Ghost Grace”.

Happiness was different in childhood. It was so much then a matter simply of accumulation, of taking things - new experiences, new emotions - and applying them like so many polished tiles to what would someday be the marvellously finished pavilion of the self.

Language. Words. The world is not real for me until it has been pushed through the mesh of language[.]

"Se supone que la vida, la auténtica vida, es una lucha... pero cuando vuelvo la vista atrás me doy cuenta de que la mayor parte de mis energías se dedicaron siempre a la simple búsqueda de cobijo, de comodidad, de, sí, lo admito, un rincón acogedor". 
"El mar", John Banville

Quote
She is lodged in me like a knife and yet I am beginning to forget her. Already the image of her that I hold in my head is fraying, bits of pigments, flakes of gold leaf, are chipping off. Will the entire canvas be empty one day? I have come to realise how little I knew her, I mean how shallowly I knew her, how ineptly. I do not blame myself for this. Perhaps I should. Was I too lazy, too inattentive, too self-absorbed? Yes, all of those things, and yet I cannot think it is a matter of blame, this forgetting, this not-having-known. I fancy, rather, that I expected too much, in the way of knowing. I know so little of myself, how should I think to know another?
John Banville, from The Sea (Alfred A. Knopf, 2005)
