a quote from High Fidelity, by Nick Hornby

I've always liked this one:

"It seems to me that if you place music (and books, probably, and films, and plays, and anything that makes you feel) at the centre of yr being, then you can't afford to sort out yr love life, or start to think of it as the finished product.

You've got to pick at it, keep it alive and in turmoil, you've got to pick at it and unravel it until it all comes apart and yr compelled to start all over again."

Is it time for me to start all over again, having picked and picked until nothing was left? Or shall I just remain alone with my music, books and films for company?
