Speaking Ruins

The writer and I met at Victoria Memorial during a lit-fest. I waited till he finished with the autograph hunters. He’s a coffee-man. We sneaked into Flurys.

You often speak to ruins and they speak back. Is that true?

Yes, I chat with forts, abandoned houses and the like.

How do you do this?

It just happens. When you’re made to go through fire and ice in life, you become a ruin yourself. Now I’m able to interpret their vibes, and they mine.

Do you find them more interesting than humans?

Infinitely so! They suffer so gracefully, unlike the flesh-and-blood.
