When I need to read at night but one of my kids need my company in order to sleep. Goodbye candlelight. Hello, Paperwhite. .

“Is it nice, my preciousss? Is it juicy? Is it scrumptiously crunchable?”

My kids and I are about 30% into this classic. I'm actually surprised it's held their attention this far (6 and 3 year olds).

If you are in love — that‘s a good thing — that‘s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don‘t let anyone make it small or light to you.
[…]
If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.
John Steinbeck, Steinbeck: A Life in Letters

(Not an accurate representation of real life---a lot of good things get away---but still a good sentiment. And my favorite Steinbeck letter.)

My kids and I finished this read-aloud last month. We also listened to the audio book narrated by Michael York. ??

"Manic-depression distorts moods and thoughts, incites dreadful behaviors, destroys the basis of rational thought, and too often erodes the desire and will to live. It is an illness that is biological in its origins, yet one that feels psychological in the experience of it, an illness that is unique in conferring advantage and pleasure, yet one that brings in its wake almost unendurable suffering and, not infrequently, suicide."

"Human kindness was like a sun shining upon him, and he flourished like a flower planted in good soil.
And yet he remained somehow different from other dogs. He knew the law even better than did the dogs that had known no other life; and he observed the law more punctiliously; but still there was about him a suggestion of lurking ferocity, as though the Wild still lingered in him and the wolf in him merely slept." #whitefang #jacklondon

Madness: A Bipolar Life | Marya Hornbacher
post image

"And then the horror sets in. All that time I wasn‘t crazy; I was, in fact, crazy. It‘s hopeless. I‘m hopeless. Bipolar disorder. Manic depression. I‘m sick. It‘s true. It isn‘t going to go away. All my life, I‘ve thought that if I just worked hard enough, it would. I‘ve always thought that if I just pulled myself together, I‘d be a good person, a calm person, a person like everyone."
