Well, I have failed at updating my journal regularly, but that which we call real life has plagued my mind and free time. I just finished my semester last week, so I have been reading and relaxing since then. Right now, I'm reading through a collection of Lovecraft's Dream Cycle, and I thought I'd share this quote because it seems appropriate:

"There are not many persons who know what wonders are opened to them in the stories and visions of their youth; for when as children we listen and dream,
we think but half-formed thoughts, and when as men we try to remember, we are dulled and prosaic with the poison of life. But some of us awake in the night
with strange phantasms of enchanted hills and gardens, of fountains that sing in the sun, of golden cliffs overhanging murmuring seas, of plains that stretch
down to sleeping cities of bronze and stone, and of shadowy companies of heroes that ride caparisoned white horses along the edges of thick forests; and
then we know that we have looked back through the ivory gates into that world of wonder which was ours before we were wise and unhappy."
- H. P. Lovecraft, "Celephais," The Dream Cycle
