    1. The writing in this book is really, really good. It’s one of those things where the story is nowhere as interesting as the writing. I could feature at least 10 excellent excerpts and it’s a very slim volume. Thanks for the compliment on the photo! 🙂

They are like little glass creatures on a high shelf.

      1. Sometimes the quality of the writing is THE thing, not the story. I’m re-reading (I think, I feel like it’s all new, for some reason!) Beloved. I have no idea what the story is about (well, I do, but the point being that it’s very vague) but the writing is exquisite.

      1. Of course you’re correct. I do understand what a struggle daily life can be for many. I can only wish it was otherwise. …
