In Coming Home, Mary Oliver once wrote “what we cherish and what we see is our life.” Whenever I read this, I sit back, relax and try to imagine myself driving the car in the dark, just like in the poem. I see “the dark edges of everything, sweeping the blackness across the deep and nameless fields of the sea.” I am alone. I am weary. I am scared.
Sure, this month had been chaotic. The most tragic accident and follow-up debates, festive family events, midterms, finals and all in between, we have been busier than ever.
But life is always chaotic. We never know what will happen next. We only hope for the best, but that does not mean we can always come up with the best. What we need is “believing in a thousand fragile and unprovable things.” “Looking out for sorrow, slowing down for happiness…”
I try to keep my life as a mixture of fun and hard work, and GT Magazine falls into the fun part. Keep up the good work, GT.
