the sounds of snow and story
more snow. i won't complain. somehow, the snow seems to have drawn a wave of words. i finally finished the last missing part of a long story.
and just fitting, this line i come across, about stories and rain:
Monica Edinger reviews The Graveyard Book at The New York Times. Her review finishes,
"I read the last of “The Graveyard Book” to my class on a gloomy day. For close to an hour there were the sounds of only rain and story. In this novel of wonder, Neil Gaiman follows in the footsteps of long-ago storytellers, weaving a tale of unforgettable enchantment."
Which made me really happy. The sounds of rain and story. Yes, that's what it's all for.
and for me, today, it was the sound of snow and stories.
