stepanvdovine In early August 1966, García Márquez accompanied Mercedes to the post office to mail the finished manuscript of ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ to Buenos Aires. They were like two survivors of a catastrophe. The package contained 490 typed pages. The counter official said “Eighty-two pesos”. García Márquez watched as Mercedes searched in her purse for the money. They only had fifty and could only send about half the book: García Márquez made the man behind the counter take off sheets like slices of bacon until the fifty pesos were enough. They went home, pawned the heater, hairdryer and liquidizer, went back to the post office and sent the second tranche. As they came out of the post office, Mercedes stopped and turned to her husband: “Hey Gabo, all we need now is the book to be no good.” 1d

stepanvdovine "The opal drop of water the chickadee drank is no different than the droplet at the tip of a bare apple tree bud that I Iift my hand to. I extend my trembling finger and the water slides onto my fingernail. I lift it to my lips and take a sip of what was once fog. It is a single cold on the tip of my tongue. I feel I am some delicate creature come newly to this place for, though I know it well, I must learn again this small half-acre of land with its intricate beauties, its many arrangements of earth, air, water and stone" - Patrick Lane, There is A Season 5d
