  • Hafada commented on the post, salvation 6 years, 9 months ago

    To be freed? To become absolved? From what?

  • Hafada commented on the post, separate 7 years, 1 month ago

    Trial separation. That’s what she said. Keeps saying, keeps telling all her friends and everyone willing to listen. Or so I’ve heard. I can see them thinking, every single one of them:
    I wonder who’ll get the kids.

    in silence through yet another meal

  • Hafada commented on the post, sound 7 years, 1 month ago

    They say I’m not of sound mind. I say I have songs running through my head all day long. I live in melody and lyrics. They say my brain is fried, but I know they’re wrong: my brain is music, is rhythm, is dance.

  • Hafada commented on the post, slight 7 years, 1 month ago

    I woke up with a slight disturbance lying next to me in bed this morning. I made it coffee but not breakfast, and then I asked it to leave. It would not. It is now sitting opposite me at my kitchen table, smiling […]

    The Catcher in the Rye, of course. No question. The great American novel. Read it, then read it again!

  • Hafada commented on the post, drifting 7 years, 2 months ago

    You’re driftwood, just driftwood, floating in the sea – or something like that. It was S.’s song for G., but it became his song for me – with time, as he kept singing it and singing it, I realised that it was […]
