Prescribolia

 


In the last decade I seem to have developed the ability to know when I’m about to see faces everywhere in abstract things like clouds, wood grain, leafy trees, a pile of clothes draped over a chair across the room. It’s called Pareidolia. So I guess my ability to feel it coming on should be called Prepareidolia.

Quotes by Laura Whitcomb  (?)

“The library smells like old books — a thousand leather doorways into other worlds. I hear silence, like the mind of God. I feel a presence in the empty chair beside me. The librarian watches me suspiciously. But the library is a sacred place, and I sit with the patron saint of readers. Pulsing goddess light moves through me for one moment like a glimpse of eternity instantly forgotten. She is gone. I smell mold, I hear the clock ticking, I see an empty chair. Ask me now and I'll say this is just a place where you can't play music or eat. She's gone. The library sucks.”
Laura Whitcomb, A Certain Slant of Light

“I couldn't take my eyes off him. Like a desert wanderer afraid of mirages, I gazed at my oasis, but he was real.”
Laura Whitcomb, A Certain Slant of Light

“To desperately hope," I whispered
James let out a breath. "To gratefully believe.”
Laura Whitcomb, A Certain Slant of Light
