“An allegory for artists…
A creative misfit is trapped in a bubble, separated by an invisible barrier from the rest of humanity. She believes nothing will ever break the barrier.
One day a musician begins to play a new song inspired by something she wrote…
A short story.” (from Goodreads)
THIS STORY. So short it’s about the size of a long blog post. Perfectly descriptive of the isolation artists face. The melancholy sadness of being alone. The power of art to bless and to connect.
Happy sigh. I loved reading it. 😉
Best quote: After a moment, a single violin note wept behind her. Then another.
I read this aloud to my younger sisters. While it was somewhat esoteric for them, my youngest sister has announced that it was “cool and very creative”. 😉
Altogether, a short but encouraging and beautiful read!
