From “How Did You Die”

“And though you be done to the death, what then?
If you battled the best you could,
If you played your part in the world of men,
Why, the Critic will call it good.
Death comes with a crawl, or comes with a pounce,
And whether he's slow or spry,
It isn't the fact that you're dead that counts,
But only how did you die?”

This might be a different type of #commitment than you were thinking, but my first thought on seeing the prompt this morning was of women committed to mental institutions, and the line "you walk from breakfast to madness"

And you who had the honor of her evening
And by that honor had your own restored
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving
Alexandra leaving with her lord.

From Alexandra Leaving by Leonard Cohen.
One of my favorite songs ♥️💔

SailorMoon Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane!!! I only bought it because Leonardo Di Caprio was on the cover. I didn't even read the plot. I just bought it and that was it. And OMG how much I loved it I can't even begin to explain!!! 5mo

Finally read the first book of my favorite author, Charles Martin it didn't disappoint. He had the lyrical, beautiful way of writing his characters even at the starr. Can't wait to read the sequel. If you have not read Chatles Martin and like flawed but loveable characters pick up one of his books. #charlesmartin #thedeaddontdance
