Heaven to earthling. Static.

The pin-drop silence followed me when I walked over to the table, where six people were sitting concentrating on their hand. It was a tense moment. I remember it as if it was just yesterday. The enormous amount of food and drinks. Lot of talks. The date imprinted on my mind forever. It was Thanksgiving day. I went and sat next to my man, his beautiful brown eyes flashing with resolve. His blue black hair was messy from running his hand through it constantly. He was going to call. Just at that precise moment Tom turned to us and said, "You guys should try this stuff Mary bought for us. Its called Pomegranate chocolate. And its heaven." Mary nodded in assent. Right after that my guy called. His team won. And I learnt to play 'Seven and a half'. It was the best first Thanksgiving anyone could have asked for.

After two months of searching we finally found it. And Tom was right. It IS heaven.

My impatience is evident by the way I have ripped the packet open.
Don't they look like jewels ? I was just short of falling unconscious after tasting it.

Speaking of heaven :

"These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence: the connections — sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent — that happened after I was gone. And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it. The events my death brought were merely the bones of a body that would become whole at some unpredictable time in the future. The price of what I came to see as this miraculous lifeless body had been my life."

I read 'The Lovely Bones" after I saw the promo for the movie with the same name directed by Peter Jackson. The style of writing is so poignant. So beautiful. Reading this book is a bittersweet experience. And it is truly lovely. The movie releases today. Hopefully I will get to see it soon.
