Started this last night. One of my favorite writers. Off to an excellent start. Engaging. It‘s going to be hard to put down. Luckily I have today off.

To live in a state of truth to truly know the world as it is, rather than as you wish to perceive it, is frightening. Terrifying.

She is totally judging my book choice. I‘m enjoying the murder mysteries though. A stab in the dark is so festive. 🔪 🎄

Orkney | Amy Sackville
post image

I would sometimes think of lighting a cigarette and realize that I already held a lit one in my hand. As if the craving would always far outreach its satisfaction, as if it was only ever a meager substitute, an insufficient means of fulfilling a greater and unknown lack. And this is how it is with her; each single instant can never be commensurate to the constant want of her.

"but like anyone who tries to run away from the past, they brought it with them. Something inexorable seeds itself in the place of your origin. You can never escape the bonds of family history, no matter how far you travel".

Star of the Sea | Joseph O'Connor

Amongst those so poor that they deserve no shame, shame lasts longer than life. Humiliation their only inheritance, and denial the coinage in which it is paid.

Cathythoughts Great book 3y

Stars foretell the fall of czars.
Strummed guitars lead to hidden bars.
Huzzahs greet news of life on Mars.
Time stands still in Shangri-las.

Sweet Caress | William Boyd

However long your stay on this small planet lasts, and whatever happens during it, the most important thing is that - from time to time - you feel life's sweet caress.
