“The best moments in reading

are when you come across something,

a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at

things, which you had thought special and

particular to you. Now here it is, set down

by someone else, a person you have never

met, someone even who is long dead.

And it is as if a hand  has come

out and taken yours.”

    Such meeting of thoughts and unexpected links console us, by the unexplained notion, that somehow an integral part of us may be part of an eternal chain.

    Thank you for this. It is uplifting.

  7. This is beautiful. And isn’t this why we write our own stories and read those of others, in order to make a connection, in order to remember we are not alone in our experiences. Thank you for sharing this thought. x
