An Infinite Summer

I am…

at a loss.
I just finished this book.
I about died.
It was one of those moments where you just sit there.
Paralyzed.
By brilliance.
My arms were like lead,
I couldn’t breathe, and my insides were light.
Good books make you think.
This book froze me.
My mind stopped.
I asked Trey, “How can some people be so brilliant?”
(his reply: “well, we work really hard and that’s just the way we are.”)
I didn’t read this.
I devoured it.
Soaked up every ounce of its glory.
Whether it was 100 pages at once or 1 paragraph, I was completely in it.
Surrounded.
I want everyone to read it.
And no one.
I want to shout to every single soul to be in this story.
And I don’t want anyone else to know about it.
It’s one of those.
Because I am convinced that no one else will love it as fiercely as I do
or see the beauty in every syllable.
This might be over the top.
I don’t care.
There is so much beauty in this world.
So many brilliant people.
Straight from God.
And words…words matter.
