The need to feel strongly...

After turning the last page on The Diving Bell and the Butterfly yesterday, these words have been echoing throughout by body ever since. A masterpiece? Perhaps, perhaps not. But certainly something I needed to read. I will treasure my copy for the rest of my days, unless I encounter someone who needs it more than I.
