inside you the time moves and she don’t fade

last night on my non-date the TTHM challenged me to find an earth-shattering book or two for him to read. a book that would change his world. that’s not an easy task, not in the least. much less when you are trying to impart all your depth, wisdom, talent, and good-taste on someone you have a crush on. i promptly suggested written on the body. i was also going to suggest aimee bender’s absolutely fabulous an invisible sign of my own, but the craptastic barnes and noble didn’t have it.

after spending a lot of the afternoon getting hopelessly lost in David Czuchlewski’s The Muse Asylum i might have another one to add to the list, based purely on this passage:
“her soul was mere millimeters beneath her skin. It would flare up and show itself in its eagerness to burst form this shallow confinement and comingle with the rest of us. Her soul had less restraint than bodies usually impose. She seemed to have been transplanted from another world, where love is made in public.”

isn’t that beautiful. have you read the book? will you talk to me about it?

    Jodi, I will be able to talk to you about it tomorrow, if you want. It’s been a while since I read it and I don’t trust myself to remember without a brief refresher. I’m sure you can’t wait!

    So I’m only on page 16 and the passage:

    I have a head for heights, it’s true but no stomach for the depths. Strange then to have plumbed so many.

    I loved that.

    I would recommend GRASS DANCER by Susan Power.
