Language and Water

From The Chronology of Water:

I thought about starting this book with my childhood, the beginning of my life. But that’s not how I remember it. I remember things in retinal flashes. Without order. Your life doesn’t happen in any kind of order. Events don’t have cause and effect relationships the way you wish they did. It’s all a series of fragments and repetitions and pattern formations. Language and water have this in common.

Lidia Yuknavitch, 28

This is an amazing book so far. And I really appreciate this remembering.
