it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

So entirely beautiful. So strange. I am very grateful that she lived.

“You mention Immortality.
This is the Flood subject. I was told that the Bank was the safest place for a Finless Mind. I explore but little since my mute Confederate, yet the ‘infinite Beauty’—of which you speak comes too near to seek.
To escape enchantment, one must always flee.”— 194

“You must let me go first, Sue, because I live in the Sea always and know the Road.” – 306

Mia Darling dearest beautiful lady,
She is best savored in sips or gulps. Nothing in between, yes?
I'm happy you're making said pilgrimage. I hope you wear a white dress.
