Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.
What a good comparison to writing! I hope you are smoothly crossing the driveway soon.
Boy! Have you been busy!
One book that needs no weeding for clumps and another memorable first line...my all-time-favorite...“I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice – not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother’s death, but because he is the reason I believe in God; I am a Christian because of Owen Meany.”
This makes me smile :) Just have to figure out the right bits.
Don't you love editors? They convince us to rip apart the pieces we truly love. Enjoy the new driveway! We park on driveways; drive on parkways. What gives? Oh my gosh!!!! Owen Meany. I almost forgot. Thanks for the reminder, Kate. You probably realize I'm a big Irving fan.
Is it in front of your door ?!:(
“Maybe we’re here only to say: house, bridge, well, gate, jug, olive-tree, window--at most, pillar, tower--but to say them, remember, oh! to say them in a way that the things themselves never dreamed of so intensely.” --Rilke
