1Q84

I know you’ve got something inside you that you need to write about, but you can’t get it to come out. It’s like a frightened little animal hiding way back in a cave – you knoknow

it’s in there, but there’s no way to catch it until it comes out.

I have this strange feeling

that I’m not myself anymore. It’s hard to put it into words, but I guess it’s like I was fast asleep, and someone came, disassembled me, and hurriedly put me back together again. That sort of feeling. (…)

My eyes tell me I’m the same old me, but something is different from the usual. Not that I can clearly recall what “usual” was.
