THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS

THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS

This is the book that made me a card-carrying member of Elizabeth Gilbert’s tremendous fandom.

THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS tells the story of one incandescent woman named Alma Whittaker. Born of the formidable Whittaker family of 19th-century Philadelphia and steeped in the world of botany, her love for a fragile, ethereal artist sets her on a journey of a lifetime. To quench her unrelenting thirst for knowledge and discover the grandeur of the earthly life.

I did not believe I would ever find botany so engrossing…

 

MYSTERY ENDING

KILA

Here comes July’s rain
Missing cerulean skies
Though it is lovely
Dreaminess takes over me
Sleep is all I want to do
She observed loudly
I am such a feminist
Yet so feminine
A feminine feminist
Why is that a paradox
Magical creature
Quenching thirst for wonder
Holding my man’s hand
Beautiful beloved
I’m the woman on the moon
A notebook, a pen
Biting into an apple
Writing down a word
I show up each day for this
Revelation on the page
In my gravity
Wondering where this all leads
Mystery ending
Touching the ineffable
Still listening to the rain
