We Stopped at Perfect Days by Richard Brautigan

Listening to Yo-Yo Ma’s Cello Concerto, Op85 – Adagio. Working in a trance, as another typhoon sweeps through the streets outside. You are already naked, says the voice in my head, there is no reason not to follow your heart. I think I finally know what the future can be like.

We Stopped at Perfect Days
Richard Brautigan

I turned to say something—

This is from Rommel Drives On Deep Into Egypt by Richard Brautigan, published by Delacorte, 1979.
