Bookshop sessions with Pema Wangyel and Solly Baba.
Thank you Dipika
Have you ever strolled along the edges of the unspoken
where the words lie like dried leaves,
waiting for someone to walk upon them
so they be heard.

We all are born broken. We are broken stories, broken colors. We are given life to repair and heal ourselves. Along the journey of life we pick up the pieces - our pieces of stories to connect with our humanity and to complete our own being. At times a piece comes along as a poem, and at times in the form of a woman. We all contain and live in each other’s stories. A friend comes along with my blue. She contains my red. That’s why I am also you. It’s because of the brokenness that I write a poem. It’s also because of the brokenness that I fall in love.Tashi Gyeltshen

Thank you Solly and Tenzin :)
What is more natural than that a solidity, a complicity, a bond should be established between Reader and Reader, thanks to the book? You can leave the bookshop content, you, a man who thought that the period where you could still expect something from life had ended. You are bearing with you two different expectations, and both promise days of pleasant hopes; the expectation contained in the book - of a reading experience you are impatient to resume - and the expectation contained in that telephone number - of hearing again the vibrations, a times treble and at times smoldering, of that voice, when it will answer your first phone call in a while, in fact tomorrow, with the fragile pretext of the book, to ask her if she likes it or not, to tell her how many pages you have read or not read, to suggest to her that you meet again…
