December 2004 Passage of the Month

From Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's Queen of Dreams, page 166:

"But they keep sitting at the table, each thinking of the story--but differently, as teller and listener always must. In the mind of each, different images swirl up and fall away, and each holds on to a different part of the story, thinking it the most important. And if each were to speak of what it meant, they would say things so different you would not know it is the same story they are speaking of. But the sharing of the story has created something between them, something that stretches, trembling like the thinnest strand of a spider-web between them."
