I Wrote This For You by Pleasefindthis

May 18

I came across a website, I Wrote This For You dot me, and found the writing of this person enamoring. He had published a book of various posts he had written over the years illustrated with photographs taken by his partner,  Jon Ellis. Naturally, I bought the book, I Wrote This For You straight away. I actually read the entire book aloud to a friend the night I bought it. We finished within an hour and a half and it was definitely worth the read. We stopped and discussed many of the passages, as well. The author has lovely insight into human frailty, pain, suffering and love. His words touch some part of us that are wounded, that may never heal. He writes to and for all of us. Telling us things we all need to hear every now and again. Reminding us it is OK to be gentle and open, to love without fear or love despite fear.

A few passages stood out for me. I bookmarked a lot of pages. But one really resonated because it reflects how I feel lately. It is titled, “The Bleach”:

You are your hair and your eyes and your thoughts. You are what you look at and what you feel and what you do about it. The light from the sun is still a part of the sun. My thoughts of you are as real any part of you.

This book is filled with lovely snippets of human emotion. Bravo to the author willing to share and lay his soul bare for the whole world to read and I hope it was as well-received by others as it was by me. You can get this book here.

 

This book was part of my reading challenge — the 2012 Eclectic Reader Challenge — under my favorite genre: prose.
