Roussan Publishers, October 2000
The world I am in now cannot be interrupted. It is filled with poetry and Tad.
I am no longer the childlike Slava of Montreal, or the struggling Elizabeth at boarding school in Victoria. I feel changed in a way I don’t understand. Tad seems a little detached at times and I feel insecure about his feelings for me. Adam, from this vantage point, is but a pin on the map of my life. Joshua is still there, like a sunflower in my grandfather’s garden that I loved but that now only exists in memory.
