    The passage when Elisabeth met Daniel. So charmingly written. This is how a lifelong friendship unfolds I presume? It is even more romantic than the best love-at-the-first-sight kind of thing.

    Again, Elisabeth and Daniel’s second interaction touched me deeply. The imagination of an art piece, and yes, the throwing of a watch into the canal. I’m afraid Ali Smith has just made into my list of favorite authors. (Although it means nothing, to no one but me.)

    "A minute ago it was June. Now the weather is September. The crops are high, about to be cut, bright, golden.

    November? unimaginable. Just a month away.

    The days are still warm, the air in the shadows sharper. The nights are sooner, chillier, the light a little less each time.

    Dark at half past seven. Dark at quarter past seven, dark at seven."

    This, I believe is the first time in this book Ali Smith talks about autumn. And so well-written. You can almost feel the elapse of daylight. So beautiful, with a touch of melancholy.

    Oh how much I loved this book!

    The bagatelle part. Ingenious. How I wish I could've met someone and played such game with, when I was thirteen years old. The picture/story one and this - he is telling her all about imagination, empathy via some simple games that doesn’t require any tools, props, specific timing or places. Even thought-provoking questions such as “what is truth”? Is anything truer than other things?
