The bliss

«She had an instant of hesitation before opening the car’s door, so that she could linger, for a few more seconds, in the final frontier, where wishes are just about to be fulfilled and therefore prolong the bliss of positive expectations.» 
                                                 By Raquel R. in Short Story number 10 

 «To be alive is a fine thing. It is the finest thing in the world though hazardous. It is a unique thing. It happens once in a lifetime. To be alive, to know consciously that you are alive and to relish that knowledge – this is a kind of magic. Or it may be a kind of madness, exhilarating but harmless.»
                                                                                                             Edna Ferber

Comforting isolation

«The isolation of that place was total, yet it was strangely comforting. As she turned off the car’s engine, the silence immediately filled every vacant space in her heart and mind.» 
                                                  By Raquel R. in Short Story number 10

«There is a solitude, which each and every one of us has always carried with him, more inaccessible than the ice-cold mountains, more profound than the midnight sea; the solitude of self. Our inner being, which we call ourself, no eye nor touch of man or angel has ever pierced.»
                                                                                       Elizabeth Cady Stanton

«Numb with beauty»

«Suddenly, there it was. First, just a glimpse of it. Then, as a prelude before the final revelation of the magnificent element, the daylight slightly changed its intensity by becoming brighter, and after a set of sand dunes, the open ocean was finally right in front of her.» 
                                                  By Raquel R. in Short Story number 10

«You know a moment is important when it is making your mind so numb with beauty.»
                                                                                                Friedrich Nietzsche

«The place of places»

«Although only a few miles separated her from her destination, the anxiety she was feeling inside did not tone down. In fact, it seemed that it grew stronger in the inverse proportion of the distance still keeping her apart from her goal.»
                                                            By Raquel R. in Short Story number 10 

«This is the place of places and it is here.»

                                                                                                       Gertrude Stein
