Miracle

“Like at night when you’re driving somewhere, and it’s dark and the lights of the highway are streaming past, and you’re not even talking, and one of you reaches out and holds the other one’s leg for a while. It’s the truest moment in the world…. And all it says is: There you are and here I am, and we’re here together. You get it in airplanes, too, when the lights are out and you’re the last people awake. Or even in the middle of a bad party when your eyes meeet across the room. It’s the only miracle we get, I think.”

–Gabriel Noone
