I could have left this day unmarked but for the book blog anniversary, I thought I’d share a few words from one of my favourite storytellers:
She will see the cherry blossoms bloom and think that, yes, somehow they are different here, even if it is only the weight of so many stories blowing the branches a little.
I have tried to err on the side of love. That is a phrase I would not mind inking on my skin, above my door, upon my grave.
