On my way to college
Foster Falls in Tracy City, Tennessee
Sunset over the Clouds

Before birth we are part of the infinite possibilities that may or may not be fulfilled; whereas, once dead, we cannot fulfill ourselves either in the past (to which we now belong entirely but on which we can no longer have any influence) or in the future (which, even if influenced by us, remains forbidden to us).
—"Learning to be Dead" Mr. Palomar by Italo Calvino
