All this time the fireworks keep exploding — every time there’s a momentary pause, we relax, but then more go off, Nick’s hands shake again, and I tense up. Every explosion is accompanied by shrieks, laughter, and applause. In between the fireworks, the pale shallow circle from the flashlight is the only illumination. All the streetlamps are burned out.
The Rules for Hearts, p.93
Courtesy of the lovely and talented Colleen Coover, here’s the third of seven icons based on different elements of The Rules for Hearts. I’ll release one a week, each with a quote from the book, until the beginning of April. Feel free to use them wherever you’d like! And if you put them somewhere on your blog, MySpace, journal, etc., I’d love it if you posted the address in the comments!
These icons also exist as vinyl stickers, suitable for decorating computers, skateboards, instrument cases, etc. Want a set of all seven stickers? Send a self-addressed stamped envelope to:
