Strange Stories

“There was a time when Mo talked to his wife about the places he had been to — Resolute, Qaqaitsut, Sakha, Laptev Sea — names like magic spells. With the years, the geography of his past began to run together, the borders crumbling in his head. It was all just the North to him after a while. The North, and him a young man in it.”

  1. The detail about the general not noticing details that weren’t of tactical importance blew me away — as did the way the mirror at the opening with the hare — reflects into the story’s opening at the end.

    Moved me to tears.

    Some lines by GOdard, I think or maybe he’s quoting: We disappear into the world like shadows in a mirror, while centuries gather at the horizon like strange storms.

    Rilke’s sonnets to Orpheus too

    But the story’s completely your own in your singular voice. You inspired me. Thank you.
