Re: Other Media that gave you "The Feels."

John Stienbeck's Of Mice and Men, Dennis Lehane's Gone Baby Gone, Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood, Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms and O.E.

Re: The Path(s) Not Taken

Lilly might have decided to stay in Japan anyway if Hisao wasn't in hers or Hanako's route. Why? Because without Hisao, Hanako isn't so well and she might decide to stay for her sake alone. I heard some of the endings even suggest so. I think that the opposite could happen. Lilly could see the writ...

Eva Cassidy's version of "Fields of Gold" reminds me of Lilly's path, for obvious reasons

Re: Haiku

The eastern form of art that is Haiku, Is something I have never really learned. Thus writing Haiku's something I eschew. For Shakespeare's verses have I ever yearn'd. 8) I've always preferred Allen Gisnberg's writing, due to his use of free verse and interesting metaphor, and touching on subjects ...
