Chapter 256: Misplaced Trust

In Uncategorized on September 13, 2011 at 8:11 pm

The one person you can always trust is yourself. It’s an aphorism my mother always whispered against my brow in times of trouble, probably mimicking a gesture as old as the troubles in her home city of Belfast.

The more I consider my situation, the less faith I place in her maternal benediction. Because I don’t trust myself, not anymore than I trust all of the other versions of myself that I’ve encountered.

Our minds are such fragile things; it takes so little to destroy them. A high fever, a bump on the head, a few trips across strange worlds.
