Page Crawl v. 1.3

In honor of those tackling NaNoWriMo beginning today, a 'page crawl' this morning. If you're unfamiliar, it's where I pull a phrase or sentence from the same page of an assortment of books. This morning's is pulled from page 49:

Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know / the scent of one particular human being / take in every detail, asking for names…to link into elaborate genealogies / so this will be a happy story / her old life was behind her, as cleanly cut off as if she had taken a knife to it / it is good to be a little dumb when you want to write / hidden in us a dormant poet / how odd a blend of illusion and reality it all is / as big as life, then / a task undertaken only by gods and poets.
