By night in China

It’s not as if our lives are divided simply into light and dark. There’s shadowy middle ground. Recognizing and understanding the shadows is what a healthy intelligence does. And to acquire a healthy intelligence takes a certain amount of time and effort. I don’t think you have a particularly dark character.

Haruki Murakami, After Dark

      1. OK, so I didn’t miss anything. What you said is so true though–everything is so black and white, and people are so polarized these days; there’s no room for discussion or respectable debate. It’s all in that gray area, the shadows, where intelligent minds and cooler heads prevail.
