"I saw the sky and sea and sand and the flickering flames of the bonfire through my tears. All at once, it rushed into my head with tremendous speed, and made me feel dizzy. It was beautiful. Everything that happened was shockingly beautiful,
enough to make you crazy."
"Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and blow up the bonfire."
“The flames of the luau bonfire burned brightly. Sparks flew into the sky and disappeared before they reached the stars above. Near the horizon, the moon was large
and round and flawless as porcelain.”
