I step forward and look down...Into a whirlpool that could eat the Titanic for breakfast. But there's no water, only a swirling tube made of a million pulverized galaxies. Not that my eyes can really latch onto anything inside, except for the man. His crisp dark form shrinks into the faraway brightness.Is this where Dad goes when he drops in on someone? Is the clockwork dude his rival researcher?The sun brightens, and as it does, the hole starts to contract. Sharp edges of pavement eat into it, closing fast. I can't let him get away. Somehow we're all connected. Me, the mechanical man, Sophie, and Dad.I take a step forward and let myself fall.-- pg 11, Untimed by Andy Gavin
QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19
First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.
