Beyond FOOD FOR THOUGHT: From Gabriel García Márquez’s LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA
As I read I jot down lines I love—usually in journals but that’s not always the convenient option. Rather than continue to scatter these gems and hide/lose them forever, I thought I’d start “jotting” them down here for others to read…and me to better remember. Some I like because they capture a fleeting truth; others, like this one, reveal why certain writers continue to amaze with their specific, deliberate manipulations of the written word. I crave such patience and deliberation…as a writer, as a parent, as a person.
p.s. “Vetiver” is a grass from India with aromatic roots; its oil is used in perfumes. And yes, I just looked that up!
