...and the red sun was pasted in the sky like a wafer....
When I was in 10th grade (40-ish years ago), my English teacher taught me something I still remember. Our book assignment was Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
Mr. Mitchell taught us about
he must have really "taught" me because I still remember those words and what they implied
(life goes on)
all these years later
to this day when I begin a book, I find myself searching for that one line
those few words
that will tell me
"ah yes...this is going to be worth my time"
My latest read
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Although it was high summer, a fire had been lit and table lamps switched on. The bedroom was warm and softly lit, encouraging me to lie on the bed for twenty minutes rest
And a book I read every year if not more
and always give as gifts
Patience, patience, patience..is what the sea teaches
patience and faith. One should lie empty, open and choiceless--as a beach, waiting for a
gift from the sea
Today we finally have a great snow going
a good day for a book do you think?
