Distortion


I just finished reading a book and my sense of reality is pretty warped at the moment. I want to write a review of my reading experience, like I usually do, but I think I need about a week of sitting quietly by myself in a dark room to process my thoughts first. There are books that affect the reader, and then there are books that sink into the fabric of space/time and pull everything into the gravity well behind them. Poised on the cusp of this singularity, I’m still sorting through the distortion.

And while I’m not able to articulate what I think about it yet, it is requiring all of my available Think.

It doesn’t help that I’m trying to chew all this over on an empty stomach. It’s Friday after all. And I only just finished reading it this morning. And it’s not the kind of book you can really make any worthwhile conclusions about until you’ve swallowed the whole thing. And we all know that the truth is hard to swallow.

At any rate, I like to think that I’ll have some cogent thoughts on it in a day or two, once I’ve had a chance to sleep on it. Some things just take time and this is one of them.
