About this product
- DescriptionTime is the hour at which a pub closes, the moment we must put our pencils down, a way of paying later for something w. A Grammar to Waking explores moments we wake to the grammar of living time, what Virginia Woolf called moments of being. In the drift of the present, of song in the throat of its bird and the verb in its sentence, the drift of loved one into memory, of talk from the talker to the listener, how and where does meaning live? There are so many rules we don't even kw, writes Nancy Eimers, but we wake to them anyway. This collection offers a reflective, loving look at the mystery of the time being.
