100 Years of Solitude

I just finished reading 100 Years of Solitude and as I breathed in the last words on the page, deep chills flowed across my body with thrilling waves of understanding, awareness, and unconsciousness all at the same time.

I will not write the last sentence because it would steal meaning from a full experience in which you will have immersed yourself in the book as a whole, but I will share and love this section leading up to it the final words.

Beyond beautiful…

“And then they learned that dominant obsessions can prevail against death and they were happy again with the certainty that they would go on loving each other in their shape as apparitions long after other species of future animals would steal from the insects the paradise of misery that the insects were finally stealing from man”. 

Gabriel García Márquez
