“You find someone with a story, Carry, record them and keep it safe, it’s a treasure, one day it will be listened to...” Send me a parcel with a hundred lovely things.
I can feel your smile as you read my book. I can see you searching between the lines for the words I didn’t write. What of yourself might be revealed in my memoir? My story becomes increasingly yours as you turn the pages.
So many stories in so many books. Until recently I have been an anonymous reader scaling new heights of the imagination …through pages written by a stranger.
Now I am also a writer, capturing lived and told stories in my world as it changes around me, planting them on the page and placing the finished book on the shelf. Now the stories are there forever. Hard copy, cannot be deleted.
