Exquisite Words

I just finished Jen Sook Fong Lee’s "The Better Mother," and these words are just beautiful…

“Through the lens, the world resettled. He saw the angles of shadows, the fall of light on walls, faces, shoes. He saw the tetherball hanging alone in the school’s concrete court and understood that its meaning in a photograph was more than a ball on a rope. It was loneliness and hope and the promise of play, all in one. Absolute, wordless sense.”
