“At Last. Something Real.”

“At Last. Something Real.”


"When something real is about to happen to you, you go toward it with a transparent surface parallel to your own front that hums and bisects both your ears, making eyes very alert. The light bends toward chalky blue. Your skin aches. At last: something real."

-- Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

"At last. Something real." is a phrase that has haunted me for years.
