I feel there are many conversations occurring all at once. Many events colliding, emotions running high, information questionable. Voices yelling, voices silenced. These pages hold the fragments, the fallout; at times clear, but mostly murky. There is a weight to the pages, there is confusion. Yet, I feel a quietness when the book is closed and contained with the silence of the slipcase.
