…most important thing about life is that people let themselves be absorbed into things. as long as you do that there won’t be any problems. it’s like when you’re in the forest, you become a seamless part of it. when you’re in the rain, you’re a part of the rain. when you’re in the morning, you’re a seamless part of the morning. when you’re with me, then, you’re a seamless part of me.
– Murakami Haruki, Kafka on the Shore
