Details about Half Sick of Shadows by Laura Sebastian
Half Sick of Shadows by Laura Sebastian ePub PDF download – THERE IS PEACE at the loom, in the steady rhythm of my fingers dancing over the silk strands like a musician with a lyre, peace in the threads weaving in and out, in the future revealing itself to me stitch by stitch, possibility by possibility. Such small movements, repeated again and again and again, each one small and meaningless on its own—but when the tapestry begins to take shape and tell its story, the infinitesimal becomes infinite. As a child in Shalott, I learned how to change the color of the threads to render an image, frozen forever in time, but now I use only white. The magic-imbued strands glisten like opal in the afternoon sunlight that filters into my workroom through the oversized window. Outside, the staggering cliff my cottage sits on juts out over rolling, pearl-tipped waves. They crash against Avalon’s shore, the sound loud enough to reach me even in my cottage, but I don’t mind it. The steady sound soothes my mind, turning it soft and malleable and blank, receptive to the magic that buzzes its way through me from my fingertips to my toes.
