I thought of you Donna:

"I'm only supposed to tell one story at a time, one story. Every writing course I ever heard of said the same thing. Take one story, follow it through, beginning, middle, end. I don't do that. I never do.

Behind the story I tell is the one I don't.

Behind the story you hear is the one I wish I could make you hear."

-- From Two or Three Things I Know For Sure, by Dorothy Allison p. 39.

I LOVE this book and have come back to it repeatedly. I know I give the impression I only read the same five books over and over foresaking all others... it's just that some books are good entertainment and others hold truths that hit me in the gut. I come back to these books when I need to be reminded of these things. And sometimes I come back to these books without knowing I need the reminder.
