Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps by Charlotte Eriksson
“It was a very ordinary day, the day I realised that my becoming is my life and my home and that I don't have to do anything but trust the process, trust my story and enjoy the journey. It doesn't really matter who I've become by the finish line, the important things are the changes from this morning to when I fall asleep again, and how they happened, and who they happened with. An hour watching the stars, a coffee in the morning with someone beautiful, intelligent conversations at 5am while sharing the last cigarette. Taking trains to nowhere, walking hand in hand through foreign cities with someone you love. Oceans and poetry.

It was all very ordinary until my identity appeared, until my body and mind became one being. The day I saw the flowers and learned how to turn my daily struggles into the most extraordinary moments. Moments worth writing about. For so long I let my life slip through my fingers, like water.
I'm holding on to it now,
and I'm not letting go.”
Charlotte Eriksson
The Harp-Weaver and Other Poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay
“I will come back to you, I swear I will;
And you will know me still.
I shall be only a little taller
Than when I went.”
Edna St. Vincent Millay

This book was really quite enjoyable although I wanted more out of the ending. Perhaps the author is setting up for a second installment of this book (I hope so).
