All quiet in Macondo

Drinking filtered light,
While trees dress themselves in green,
Tiny stars appear.

.... Its just beginning, the trees leaves are starting to come out and the wild garlic beginning to flower. Soon this part of the woods will be carpeted in white stars....

So very sad to hear of the death of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, one of the greatest writers of his generation and a personal favourite. 100 years of solitude an absolute masterpiece. It's strange that his style is described as 'magical realism' .... isn't that what all fiction is?
