What if I had never read Fitzgerald? What if I had never known of their mad love? What if there had never been a party across the water? Perhaps I would have wandered, blind, through a lifetime of days, never knowing that there was more. Never knowing the full measure of that which was waiting between the lines, written by a man in love with a woman who was made entirely of faults and cracks. And now, I sit here writing in homage, thanking that literary giant who wrote those lines that brought you to my heart.
A lifelong bibliophile and writer, I am now beginning to share my words with others.
