Chapter One, 2013 : ” She daily fades away. Like the hedge rose that is broken in the heat of the day.”
So she went into the woods because she wanted to live deep & suck out all the marrow of life. To put to rout all that was not life; And not, when she came to die, discover that she had not lived.

You will never fade away completely.You will be the sun they see in the middle of the darkness. You will be summer-sparkle in every beautiful ocean & sea. You will be everything except nothing. ”
