I was sifting through old notes I’d jotted down while working on the original intro to Dream Waters book 1 earlier today. Though this opening never found its way into the finished book, I thought I’d share it with you now-
My name is Charlie Oliver and this is my story, but I am not the only teller of this tale. I am but one of its many voices, and I think that’s the way it was meant to be. Life is a symphony and one lone instrument could never do it justice. It’s the weaving and interconnecting of the sounds of each instrument that moves us. Perhaps that’s because connection is what we all ultimately seek. This world is a place filled with heartache and pain. Many souls wander through it desperate and alone. Other souls pass by them every day but they never connect. They are but one lone instrument playing only portions of a song, unaware that an orchestra surrounds them. If they were to connect, their lone grief-stricken notes would become something magical. Listen to our words and we’ll share with you a symphony.
