I am falling. The rush against my face jarring, the pull of gravity compelling… I drop with a thud, in a white garden of black tulips. I get up and meander the paths, as the tulips sing to me about castles, knights and princesses of exotic lands. I laugh, I cry, I run like the wind with the mad hatter giving me the chase and suddenly find myself on a bench waiting for the train. I am reading a white page, filled with words in black ink and I find myself falling, falling …..
This is the first book I have read this year and it fell flat . I struggled to finish it and did it only because I did not want the very first book of this year to be left half read.
The Hawaiian culture and dialect was hard to decipher and I felt I was grappling most of the time to understand it. Th e story is about a family with 3 children. One of the boys has a gift and the book is mostly about how this changes the family dynamics .At first the book was slow and I kept waiting for something to happen and then it suddenly picked up with the abrupt death of one of siblings and fell into the dredges once again.
That said , I am in indeed in the minority and maybe it was just not my book or maybe the timing was all wrong . Anyway if you read it I hope you have better luck with it than I did.
When I did not See me in your eyes I took all my love Wove them into words On a string of poetry And bound me to you But when sun came out I soaked up all the light Like a sunflower in a field That swayed with wind And set free the words That reminded me of you.
I love red . It ‘s bold unlike me, passionate also unlike me. Sigh, I want a red pair for the school dance. I think it will wake up the other me, buried deep within….that was 30 years ago.
When I see my daughter, I see me. Her eyes full of wonder, she gazes at the red ballerina. The school fest is around the corner. She does not ask as she knows when money is tight, prioritizing is must, but it is important to teach her, its okay to prioritize yourself as first. Red shoes are coming home with us!
Note: I am so happy to find a picture( after such a long time ) that spoke to me of a tale …
