'the bigness of the world is redemption. despair compresses you into a small space, and a depression is literally a hollow in the ground. to dig deeper into the self, to go underground, is sometimes necessary, but so is the other route of getting out of yourself, into the larger world, into the openness in which you need not clutch your story and your troubles so tightly to your chest.'| rebecca solnit, the faraway nearby [emphasis mine]
