This is incredible writing - the kind of writing that makes me want to give up writing as a bad job. Your word choices are awesome, and I mean that in the original sense of the word, where I am sitting here reading and rereading and feeling them arch in my brain, filling in the spaces between the words with images, completing the dialogue between you (author) and me (reader, author, appreciator). The story, the exploration of such an idea, the roots of magic and instinct and raw animal despair - I can't get this story out of my head (a good thing, I think) and I want to devour it, let its juices run down my chin, try to catch it and figure out how this extraordinary fruit gives such juice. Can you possibly tell me how you learned to write this way?
