Pretty darn cool. What he said is what drives me sometimes.
Ill read it
at the end of the dedication, there at the bottom, i exhaled and rubbed my flat palm on the top of my head. and i felt very sad that i am at work and can not go for a walk to think about patrick lane and stories and chairs i've sat in over the years. this was good. and it makes me want a long evening of stories.
This had special meaning to me as I spent a number of years in the Mid-East. Part of the language problem would be recognized by an old Mid-East Ex-Patriot. There are as many dialects and idioms in the Arabic languages, plus Farsi & Urdu and others, as there are distinct clans and tribes there. The same is true of most countries, including those we enjoy living in. A great read, thanks so much for the link. Like hamster, I too find myself reminiscing about by-gone days and craving stories:)
I have a confession to make. I sometimes have an inferiority complex around here because I'm kinda smart enough, but I don't always get the literary comments and I'm too lazy to figure out the secret meaning of a poem when I'm not so in tune with it and I can't instantly get the secret meaning. So I wasn't going to go and follow this link because I figured I'd be too literarily stupid to get it. But after all your encouraging comments - I've mustered up the courage and I will go read it!
