I want you to know that even if no one else does, even if you are a ghost in this bookshop, or just the static floating across the screen of your computer, wherever you're reading this, I see you.
I see you in the dark and I see you in the grey. I see you as a story, as words I have spoken or may yet speak. Maybe only in a memory or a dream.
I see your hands and your arms and your body and your legs and your face and I see what you have been and what you will be. I see you and in looking at you, I want you to know that whoever you've had to be to survive all this, I will not look away.
I want you to know that there's a space inside this book for you.
So if you have the time and the inclination, you can sit here with me, just for a while.
And perhaps between us, we can see everything that matters.
