Here is my offering this week:
...how fragile I feel....Like a piece of fine glass that has just been thumped, I'm vibrating, waiting for just the right frequency that will shatter me to pieces.
From BREATHE MY NAME
by R. A. Nelson
These are the offerings from last week's Grab-A-Line Monday:
Annie Louden shared this:
"He only loved his love for me and the pictures he was drawing. He loved those two. He loved the feeling he was having. I was a mere accessory to the feeling.
-Charles Baxter, THE FEAST OF LOVE
And Solving Sherrie, being the rock star that she is, offered a line from a song by Gin Blossoms.
"She had nothing left to say, so she said she loved me. And I stood there grateful for the lie."
Tanita remembered the colorful quotes from the week before and offered this saffron-colored line:
Deep down I'm not all that cynical, or hard or mean-- more soft-centered and especially vulnerable (or gullible, if you like) to first impressions; so I was a bit overwhelmed when I stepped into that Air India plane and was immediately transported to another planet. - Indian Summer, Pratima Mitchell
MG Higgins read Umbrella Summer after reading my review (I am glad you liked it!) and liked this line:
"I wished there was a way to keep that in a bottle, that one moment of wonderful perfect, so I could open it up whenever I needed to get a good whiff.Shelley the story queen probably loves speaking this line to her young audience:
"Kidnapping children is not a good idea. All the same, sometimes it has to be done."
Eva Ibottson, ISLAND OF THE AUNTS
Nandini explained that this line needed context to be funny, which I didn't understand:
"Greetings, Ancient Uncle," he panted, "you have a very fast bullock."What caught you this week?
