I feel almost like I am drowning in this book. In a good way.
If you can, you know, drown in a good way.
All the rivers of words I read this summer to escape (from what? from everything!) have borne me to a river of words I myself am writing. Everyone else’s words have converged to take me to my own, and leave me there.
To sink or to swim.
Whichever way it goes is up to me.
So here’s a teaser about the book. THE BOOOOOK
It’s called watermark. With a lower-case w. I don’t know why but I like it that way and I will fight for it if the time ever comes.
When the time comes.
It asks the question – what if the thing you thought was the defining moment in your life, the moment that shaped everything about you, the moment that sealed your fate and your destiny, was based on a lie?
And what if, while watching your life and your fate and your destiny unravel, you found out the truth?
And what if the truth brought you what you wanted, and everything was coming back to you in the end, just not in the way you expected? (apologies to Luna Lovegood)
It asks these questions and I don’t know if it answers them.
The title is from a poem I wrote a long time ago:
We will never fully disappear
from one another.
This impossible love
will never completely
will never be wholly, (holy) diminished,
Your love is
across my whole life;
a ghost image
in the picture I keep
of what love looks like;
an orb, a bright shining light
I will always be subtly drawn to,
a secret, small smile
my children ask me about.
It was one of those poems that just showed up out of nowhere.
So, now you know where all my words are going and I swear if anything interesting happens I’ll write about it here!
