But it's not just me. Everything looks beautiful. The Book of Shhh says that deliria alters your perception, disables your ability to reason clearly, impairs you from making sound judgments. But it does not tell you this: that love will turn the whole world into something greater than itself. Even the dump, shimmering in the heat, an enormous mound of scrap metal and melting plastic and stinking things, seems strange and miraculous, like some alien world transported to earth. In the morning light the seagulls perched on the roof of city hall look like they've been coated in thick white paint; as they light up against the pale blue sky I think I've never seen anything so sharp and clear and pretty in my life. Rainstorms are incredible: falling shards of glass, the air full of diamonds. The wind whispers Alex's name and the ocean repeats it; the swaying trees make me think of dancing. Everything I see and touch reminds me of him, and so everything I see and touch is perfect.
As some of you know, I just finished Delirium on Sunday and boy, am I still on that high or what! Delirium doesn't leave you with a feeling of, "WOW! THAT WAS AMAZING!" It's more like, "Wow. That was breathtaking." There's a subtle difference. ;) It's just too good to pass up!
Old words; words that nearly brought me to my knees.
Life free or die.
Four words. Thirteen letters. Ridges, bumpes, swirls under my fingertips.
Another story. We cling tightly to it, and our belief turns it to truth.
I've heard/read from everyone who has read Pandemonium that it ends with a killer cliffhanger; that makes me scared and excited. As I'm reading, I'm trying to come up with various scenarios as to what could possibly occur on that last page of the book...just so I won't be too shocked...but who am I kidding? We all love those little jaw-dropping surprises! ;)
