Stitches of a song

“…He is fond of the part of the city he visits regularly, its bustling quarters with jazz clubs (The Blue Note for one), bookshops, and the handsome youth he studies from a distance. Would they hum the haunting song in their dreams, like …he does, night after night, seventy years long? How many days will still be left for him to sing, he wonders. He is venerable, like they say. How many days will still be left for him to finish his story? There are so many great ways to tell a story, and every way is tailored to the body and soul –” Butterfly, A novel by Julie O’Yang.
