China

“…But it gradually seemed to me that I’d made myself believe something that wasn’t true.  I’d made myself believe that I was fine and happy and fulfilled on my own without the love of anyone else.  Being in love was like China: you knew it was there, and no doubt it was very interesting, and some people went there, but I never would.  I’d spend all my life without ever going to China, but it wouldn’t matter, because there was all the rest of the world to visit… And I thought: am I really going to spend the rest of my life without feeling that again?  I thought:  I want to go to China.  It’s full of treasures and strangeness and mysteries and joy.
