I just reread The Memory of Trees due to the fact that you mentioned it on here a couple of times. As I read, I recalled it from before but —
Jesus Christ, this was… indescribable and the most poetic short story I’ve read for Julian and Logan so far. The metaphorical incorporation and the flow of the words were brilliant.
The personification, the hidden meaning in dialogue, the words in the parentheses, the memories — you made every single word feel so alive. The flowers, the original character of Natalie and her kindness and warmth. A lot of times, others make out Julian’s future girlfriend or a character of such, to be the enemy. But she was soft and different, and Julian did love her, but not to the extent that he loved Logan.
I just was in awe with each word. I could feel every emotion, and once again, I also loved the characterizations — how you made something so small feel so incredibly vital to their mind, body and soul.
For instance, with Natalie: “loves embroidery and painting and shivers in fear of thunder storms. A girl who plays the organ and dances in fields of clovers.”
And even Julian: “who likes butterfly kisses and loves to watch the way the trees move in the wind.”
All of this is so poetic and meaningful, and it’s one of those stories that just make you sigh with awe and your heart pound happily, unhappily — all of those mix of emotions.
You truly are a fantastic writer.
