Vaishali, Medium did not notify me of this submission! I am so sorry that I am late publishing it. Since this publication doesn’t have many submissions yet, I didn’t know about yours until I received notification of someone else’s. That is when I found yours sitting there so patiently. I’ve also been having problems getting notifications for Weeds & Wildflowers submissions but I get enough of those that I quickly see those that I didn’t know about. Anyway, so sorry about that.

I love this post. I loved the detail and the emotion about books and Kafka and particularly love your ending:

I am spending my next summer days with him in the nearby forest of the town. I won’t return as a giant bug but I will return as a rainbow butterfly for sure.

I promise I will check this publication regularly so no other submissions sneak by without notification.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
