Loved this one. Hope you're enjoying it, Melissa. The setting is definitely a character in this one.
Rene Denfeld
“I retreat from my bars, wondering why people who live outside choose such ugly words. Maybe that is what happens when you are outside, and the world clangs and barrels and shouts twenty-four hours a day, from your radio your television your wife your neighbor the lawn mower down the street and the scream of airplanes from the sky. Maybe then you use ugly words to tell life to shut up.”
Rene Denfeld, The Enchanted

“The walls that might make others feel like they are suffocating have become my lungs.”

“I went to collect the few personal belongings which...I held to be invaluable: my cat, my resolve to travel, and my solitude.”
