from Franny & Zooey by J. D. Salinger
I love it when authors are able to write about a very particular emotion, moment, action. etc that is very common, but that you wouldn’t have been ever able to explain or describe even if your life depended on it. And they do it so succinctly and precisely that you immediately recognized the behavior they describe, having come across it time and time again. It always give me thrills to come across people who command words so well and have such a keen sense of observation.
I told him,
It looked like there were galaxy clusters
In my miso soup.
He told me,
He loved me.
