Her Body Full Of Sentences

Strange DreamImage by crescentsi via Flickr"She entered the story knowing she would emerge from it feeling she had been immersed in the lives of others, in plots that stretched back twenty years, her body full of sentences and moments, as if awaking from sleep with a heaviness caused by unremembered dreams." - from The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje.

Ondaaje's writing is wonderfully evocative, this is just how I feel when I surface back into the actual world after losing myself in a novel.
