Okay, I don't fully get it. But it sounded damn good as I read it out loud. It flowed just right. And it made you think. I think you were saying we can't ever lose our past through nature and books. No matter how much they age. That's what I get from it. Good job.
The things that lie within the pages of a book or life that matters can mold a person outlook on things. A surprise awaits in every turn of the page. I am not real sure if I am colse but this is what i get from this.
