Once in a while i read a book that i just KNOW with my whole heart that are going to stay with me the rest of my life. A dear friend gave me one of those precious books as an early birthday present yesterday and i am having a hard time doing anything else then to read in it since i got it....*smiling*......... i want the story to last forever so i am trying to read it sloooooowly....
Putting with some quotes from the book, The sound of a wild snail eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey:
“Survival often depends on a specific focus: A relationship, a belief, or a hope balanced on the edge of possibility. Or something more ephemeral: the way the sun passes through the hard seemingly impenetrable glass of a window and warms the blanket, or how the wind, invisible but for its wake, is so loud one can hear it through the insulated walls of a house.”
“Illness isolates; the isolated become invisible; the invisible become forgotten. But the snail....the snail kept my spirit from evaporating.”
