In Your Body is the Garden of Flowers

Several months ago I finished work on a short piece of fiction that had been lying around over the past 18 months or so. It is a dream-like work that weaves between various stories & storytelling...like a tapestry. A short extract:

In the morning the light shone through the windows as does a hand that shakes a sleepy body. Daylight entered like an honoured guest and rested gently upon the room. I awakened refreshed yet strangely absent to myself, as if I had left so much behind. Now all I carried was my skin, hanging softly in folds like thin curtains. Somewhat relieved that whatever had been so real to me was now leaving me alone, I felt free of debt.

The whole work (30,000 words) can be found (and downloaded) from the 'My Writings (Box.net) widget on the right side of this blog. Feel free to read and share - and hopefully enjoy.
