Now it seems to me that love of some kind is the only possible explanation of the extraordinary amount of suffering there is in the world. I cannot conceive of any other explanation. I am convinced there is no other, and that if the world has indeed, as I have said, beenbuilt of sorrow, it has beenbuilt by the hands of love, because in no other way could the soul of man, for whom the world was made, reach the full stature of perfection. Pleasure for the beautiful body, but pain for the beautiful soul.
{Oscar Wilde, De Profundis}

Law school student in NYC. Still not entirely certain how she wound up here, and definitely not certain where she's trying to end up (& could use at least a couple clones of herself, if you’ve got any information on obtaining such things). Made primarily of words, coffee, beautiful music, laughter, echoes, the smell of the world after it rains, a tenacious belief in magic, heartbreak, and the whispers of history she’s picked up in her travels. (& punctuation.)
