The Unexpected | Thorpe & Smit-Dicks


*The Unexpected* drifts softly from one unresolvable apparition to another, faithful to the philosopher’s message, “Only the departure is true.”

Dwelling on the minute details that support our lives, the animal companions we inhabit them with, weather overhead & passing between our bodies, *The Unexpected* contemplates the mood of love alive in the ordinary stuff of ourselves.  Drifting aimlessly across vast expanses of white page, from one momentary residence to another, this book salutes each visitor on its passage, and leaves.
