One day while writing a letter Otoko happened to open the dictionary to the character for "think." As she scanned its other meanings ("Yearn for," "be unable to forget," "be sad") she felt her chest tighten. She was afraid to touch the dictionary - Oki was even there. Innumerable words reminded her of him. To link whatever she saw and heard with her love was nothing less than to be alive. Her awareness of her body was inseparable from her memory of his embrace. p. 160
