“I don’t understand why you freak so much about that book mark. Why does it HAVE to be THAT bookmark in THAT book?”
Whilst moving at the beginning of this year and becoming a homeless rambler with a blog in the process, upon telling one my friends that I had finished packing the living room, he asked to see a photograph of the empty space.
This was all that was left when I was done.
Yeah, we kind of never had a television.
Midget model in the corner is none other than my Molly.
I raised her from an egg.
She likes books a bit too.
Blame her mother.
So I had a chalk board in my living room, the quote written on which would change week to week.
When I moved and thus the chalkboard (that had seen better days) was abandoned, the quote read – “Their embrace had been a battle, the climax a victory…it had been a political act.”
Loosely paraphrased from Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell.
