The most beautiful piece of writing ...

I found this post, this piece of writing over at Shutter Sisters and for some reason, I found it stunningly beautiful ... perhaps it was that it seems like a series of snapshots, I don't know but I'd like to be able to find my way back to it sometimes.

It is a wonderful piece of art. As you noted, it's snapshots of her father. It's a poem laid down in prose. Very visual, multi-layered, capturing a complex relationship. A true portrait.

That is really beautiful writing all right. Sorry you have the lurg - I do too and - yes! - it's because I work at an Early Childhood Centre - this is the second lurg I've picked up (so far.) My immunity system will have built up soon though ... I hope.

When I grow up, I'd like to put together pieces like this, V.

Poor us, chiefbiscuit. It's miserable, isn't it. Get well soon!
