“One of the great tricks of time – is to make you believe everything stays the same when everything has already changed.”
Autumn is a magically beautiful season. The rustling leaves, a burst of colors, fallen chestnuts and acorns, mushrooms playing hide and seek in the woods – all these components are wonderful. I won’t even argue about it. It’s just not my cup of tea for many reasons that I had discussed once with an old man in a blue pullover.
I know that it wasn’t a coincidence that we met each other in November as if autumn had decided to arrange our encounter a long time ago. For both of us, this month wasn’t easy. The old man reminded me of “The Last Leaf” in O. Henry’s story. He was the last one on his family tree, and his face was covered with a gentle net of wrinkles; he knew that his time was running to an end, but still, he was holding tight to give hope to all those who needed it, to tell his story that could be useful and will live forever in people’s hearts.
Despite all the watchmaker’s misfortunes, there was no hatred in his big heart. His soul was like a chest full of light and mysteriously mesmerizing stories he had heard from the clocks. Because “A Clock Can Talk,” but in autumn, it usually talks a bit louder – at least in his family.
I’m not a big fan of this season, but I sincerely believe that it’s one of the best seasons to read “The Watchmaker: A Clock Can Talk.” Because, as well as Dominic Donelli (The Watchmaker), I know that “A Clock Can Talk” – at least in my family.
This is a true based story that I have so much in common with. Yes, it’s full of pain and death, but it’s also full of pure love and deep gratitude, timeless issues.
If you’re interested, you can find this book on Amazon.
I do hope that you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Anyway, thanks a lot for dropping by and reading this post!
Stay safe, take care, and happy reading!
