wow–Things Fall Apart

Well, I just finished Things Fall Apart and I am blown away.  That is a truly amazing book and I know it will be with me for awhile.  I feel the heaviness still.  I don’t know what I expected, the jacket said it was a tragedy, but it still caught me by surprise.  The real strength of the book is the way that the author never over-dramatizes anything.  No matter what the point, he makes it subtly and leaves the reader to ponder it on their own.  I am so glad that I read this one!  Yay resolutions

In one summer I had a baby who was hospitalized for five weeks, quit my job, and moved back to my hometown. This blog is about starting over.

    sounds like a good recommendation…love the wardrobe notes…and well just the whole tone of this blog…not sure exactly why…must be the way the thot molecules settled on the furniture…a lovely space it is too…
