After reading Department of Speculation, by Jenny Offill, my friend posted this quote from the book:
“How had she become one of those people who wears yoga pants all day? She used to make fun of those people. With their happiness maps and their gratitude journals and their bags made out of recycled tired treads. But now it seems possible that the thrust about getting older is that there are fewer and fewer things to make fun of until finally there is nothing you are sure you will never be.”
I fell in love with that quote so much that I knew I needed to get the book, immediately. I read it in a day. It’s good. Abstract and hard to follow at times, but good. There are so many pieces of the book that I can relate to and so many things that I thought, “Wow, I couldn’t have said it better.” It’s a book written in fragments that I imagine connect with so many. It’s a book that challenges your speculations about things.
Maybe that is life. A series of speculations that we make, trying to make things or ourselves or situations appear or disappear. Maybe the moment we stop speculating about what life could be is the moment we realize what life is.
