Muse/ic – “Part XI: Chapter IV – ‘The Keeper Of Secrets’ by Luke Slott”
Excerpt from Chapter IV: The next morning, we bought more fruit and, this time, cucumbers from the same fruit seller. If he only knew that his fruits were the highlight of my days spent in Rawalpindi— that they allowed the scent of home to overpower the murmur plans to leave for Islamabad. I wasn’t interested in the details–the only one that concerned me was to know when we would leave for Germany, for which no one had an answer I liked, wanted, or needed.
This particular piano solo lent itself perfectly to the chapter in Rawalpindi. Amidst the uncertain paths before us, I steal time, to smell, to peel fruit, to remember.
Thank you Luke.
