So. Many. Feelings. ;___;
First of all, whoa so many characters along with back stories in a book! But all lead to the same point in which sometimes life just doesn’t play out like what you have planned or what you have in mind of, but it will turn out just fine eventually. Just like what Pat (senior)’s mom said, “Sometimes what we want to do and what we must do are not the same. The smaller the space between your desire and what is right, the happier you will be.” – Noted, Antonia. Thanks for the tips.
Of all the mini stories, Maria’s got to me the most – She loves this American stranger more than every man she’s ever known, and that’s why she had to let him go, she knew that there’s no future between them.
“But I think some people wait forever, and only at the end of their lives do they realise that their lives has happened while they were waiting for it to start.”
I guess it applies to all of us – We’re too beautiful ruins.
