Like all lovers, they had soon assembled (as on a revolving stage) the places where the scenes of their drama alternately took place: a little Ukrainian diner whose windows were always occluded with steam, where the tea was black and so was the bread; the Folding Bedroom of course; a vast gloomy theater encrusted with Egyptian decoration, where the movies were cheap and changed often and played into the morning; the Nite Owl market; the Seventh Saint Bar & Grill.

--Little, Big, by John Crowley

This is the sort of book that you just fall into. Very fantastical, but very real, too. I was suggested it by a person I didn't even really know, so I found myself surprised to actually pick it up at the library and fall for it.

This quote suddenly had me mentally assembling my own such places--the places I see when I envision a certain friendship or other relationship. Each person in the book my memory with their own little movies.

...obviously I've been reading and reminiscing too much lately.
