“If the angel deigns to come it will be because you have convinced her, not by tears but by your humble resolve to be always beginning: to be a beginner.” ~Rilke
Life is busy but I still need to check in with a few anchors – books and writing. This excerpt is from a different story I’ve been playing with:
The face Jowka had chosen to bear today was a familiar one. Her friends insisted on changing bodies on a whim but she’d settled on this one. Names were odd gifts too. Jowka stenciled in her name on the inside of the fresh book.
Jowka turned the page. Her hand stung. She bit her lip over the red stain on the white sheet. Papercuts were an unfortunate human experience.
