I am reading "An Essay on Waiting" by Andrea Köhler, and in a section called "The Lagoon of Dreams", she writes:

Page 103:

For Proust "the day unravels what the night has woven; when we wake up in the morning we hold in our hands but a few ... loose strands of the tapestry of lived life, as woven for us by forgetting."

Page 116:

Caerus, the lucky moment, presupposes waiting -- the gift of time -- excruciatingly long sometimes, and sometimes blissfully wasted, but always a gift.

This essay references Peter Handke - Quiet Places - collected essays.
