whenever i read a book, i am on the lookout for words that will resonate with me,
and for sentences that are constructed in such an undeniably beautiful way that
my heart aches at the fact that did not write them myself-- even though
i am so grateful to have chanced upon them.
i cannot read all the books in the world,
and for this reason i am indebted to artists like lisa congdon,
who seem to pluck the most perfect literary sentences
out of thin air and put them into print.
