Today’s episode of At Home Diaries is our Something Borrowed podcast. Every Thursday Clifford reads excerpts from some of his favourite books, comics, and letters. Today Clifford reads a love letter from his wife Lindsay.
My book collection is pretty impressive. I have been able to cultivate quite the collection since I first worked at a used book store called Recycled Reading almost 10 years ago. It was there where I was first introduced to the touching works of Jeanette Winterson, Khaled Hosseini, Mark Haddon and Yann Martel. I’ve been able to have my soul lifted up and my mind electrified by writers who are true masters of their craft.
These authors, these masters, can’t help but impress me. But it’s not the words of Sunil Yapa or Gabriel Garcia Marquez that speak true to my heart.
It’s the words from my wife Lindsay.
She’s the one I love. The one I truly know and who truly knows me. We may not be well versed or natural born wordsmiths but when we say our words, we say them for each other, and that’s enough. It’s more than enough. It’s everything.
Enjoy this Valentines Day retrospective and a light conversation about love.
