‘Come to think of it, being with him always made me feel incredibly lonely. I don’t know why, but for some reason I’d always end up having these vaguely melancholy thoughts circling through my head – the kind of thoughts that you have when you’re gazing up at the moon, full of longing, watching as it sinks deeper and deeper into the blue depths of night, as it shimmers way off in the distance. The sort of thoughts that make you feel like you’ve been dyed completely blue, all the way to the tips of your toenails.’

– Banana Yoshimoto, Asleep
