Poems, essays, and short stories...
"She gently took my hands and used them to make shadow figures on my walls, and told me that everything we are exposed to casts a shadow. If an experience is pleasant, we can rejoice in it. If it is painful, it can form scars. If it is overwhelming, it can reduce us to shadows of what we are." (from "Nagasaki Shadows")
I find that I have to read one or two entries at a time. The emotions and perspectives are raw. For solace to be honest, so too must the need for it. It's taken me a long time to get through the collection, but I also find that I come back again to some of the stories. I keep looking for more. My soul reaches out to the souls on the pages.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I was given my copy by a member of my church who has a story published in it, "Heartbeat." The story is about the pain of loss and gain, of a chance to start...not again, but to begin. Life is a series of overlapping beginnings and endings. We never really get a clean slate. Yet, grace comes anyway. J. Scott Smith writes beautifully and straight as an arrow. It's a great example of what the whole collection does so successfully.
Get the book. Take it with you for your commute or read a story when you have a quiet moment in the evening. You'll find that it offers you just what it claims: Solace.
