The beauty in words

December 3, 2005

How does one describe a life changing event? How do you muster the words that describe the intricacies of the moment, the collision of feelings, perceptions, and circumstances that define it for you?

I have read many books in my short-yet-long life. I have experienced the joy of discovering new and unknown ideas in the books of Ayn Rand (a cliche, i know), seen the wonders and alieness of feudal Japan in James Clavell’s masterpiece, “Shogun”, and discussed moral quandaries in the future and alternate worlds of Orson Scott Card.

Yet i have not been so affected as by the sheer mastery of the words of Guy Gavriel Kay.
