I have to tell you that I am so enjoying your book! I am so engrossed, I just can't put it down.ReplyDelete
I know very little about writing, but I found this particular passage truly beautiful: "When I read Dana Gioia, I wanted to give the understanding in the last stanza to my husband. Perhaps he craved to enter. I think I know he did, but I shall never know why he could not." For me, it describes one of the really special parts in love - having taken the time to develop a deep understanding of the other person and then accepting that you'll never understand it all. Those things you can't know - the things that allow the other person to keep a small piece of themselves to themselves, even if subconsciously - give you that great chance to make another conscious choice to love them (despite maybe wanting to scream "What the FUCK?!").
Congrats, congrats, congrats!
