STORIES TO TELL
"As far as my eyes can see, white and gray grave markers line the earth, each with a tiny bit of information. Name, years lived, maybe a nice quote. But not enough to really let you know who these people were. I wonder if each marker has a story...."
The stories we tell are the stories we live. They are of the moment(s) and nothing more.
I just finished the last available book from Matthew Quick, and I am moved.
His books hit a note with me and inspire me to live life. They are simple stories, stories of imaginary characters, imaginary in our minds, but brought to life on paper.
I hope you are inspired to pick up one, if not all-
Silver Linings Playbook
Sorta Like a Rockstar
Boy21 (what I just finished and where the quote is from)
Forgive me, Leonard Peacock
The Good Luck of Right Now
I recommend them all.
