“Little solace comes to those who grieve when thoughts keep drifting as walls keep shifting and this great blue world of ours seems a house of leaves moments before the wind.” ― Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves
House of Leaves, Mark Z. Danielewski. Was one of the most exciting yet strangest pieces of lititure to read.

He is defiantly an inspiration in my reading and writing.
