An intriguing compendium of compelling, thought-provoking, and somewhat surreal short stories – modern in both writing style and outlook. – Deborah Murrell, Author and Editor
Dive into the stories of souls at play. Meet the borderless characters who enter each other's destinies, grow together and flow apart. Jump with them from one drip to another; suck up the bits of color from every page and leave some on the drips behind them.
Pete’s letters are never read by Cate but by a stranger. Zoe’s voice diminishes to a whisper and then to a silence to find what she is looking for. Cora is carried away by the conversation between two strangers she overheard on a bus before facing her reality. Agnes never finds out how a tattoo of a tree appeared on her shoulder. She accepts and embraces the tree as it responds to her emotions; Agnes is not alone anymore. John’s longing for his past hits a glitch. Dennis plays a mind game with his wife in a civilized way. Egan never finds the door to take him where he wants to go. Mateo questions if he knows Bella more after exchanging 46,127 words over text messages than reading her profile of 250 words. The author in the book creates a world for Pete, Agnes, Cate and others with the spur of inspiration from a painting on a stone. After he completes the last chapter, he searches for the picture of the painting he took. He realizes that it is not the same as he remembered. Maya plays her game until she gets hungry and Anthony confuses which of several caves to put the tree house back into when the rest of the world tries to figure out what is going on. Ash lets his soul go free from his body. Spiro goes to the cemetery to stay alive. They enter each other’s stories to mutate and flow together.
