As a Classicist I think I was destined to love this; as a one who enjoyed The Song of Achilles, I think just so.
I loved this more. I think I'm reading this at a time when I can relate to retelling stories, retelling your own story, reshaping yourself, letting go of the past so as not to simply repeat it- essentially, transformation.

Palimpsest Love what you said here about telling stories and reshaping ourselves and that‘s one of the reasons I love literature so much is we can also transform by reading other people‘s stories. On a side note, this also reminds me that I want to read Ovid‘s Metamorphosis soon. 😊 12h
Andrea4 @Palimpsest agreed ☺️ now I want to go and translate the Odyssey in entirety.... 9h

A friend called me a goddess this week and instead of shrinking from what feels like a way over the top compliment, I decided maybe I'll just try to embody what that could mean (take a cue from Circe?).

I finally slept 7/8hrs last night for the first time in at least a week and I spent most of the day walking outside (hit 30k) in the sun with a friend. Tired again, in the best way💛☀️.
To all the goddesses, shine bright☀️☀️

britt_brooke You‘re stunning, my friend! Take that goddess compliment. 💕 1d

Sleep has been a particularly elusive creature this past week so I've been up since the witching hour. But hey, did my workout for the day, got my steel-cut oats made, am enjoying the choir of birds, and can get a bunch of reading in!
Sometimes it's easier to accept the sleep loss than toss and turn getting frustrated.

Crazeedi I hear you. I'm listening to the birdie choir right now. My sleep has been horrible lately 3d
Andrea4 @Crazeedi yea, mine comes in cycles and I think the brightness of the recent full moon doesn't help...nor does summer in my case because I rise with the sun (whether or not it can actually make it into my room)!! 3d
BarbaraBB That‘s my idea too, to make the most of periods of insomnia. Wishing you a good night‘s sleep soon! 😴 3d
See All 6 Comments
Crazeedi @Andrea4 I haven't seen the moon because of all the rain. This is the longest streak of not sleeping I've had. And then my days just are crap, because I just don't have the energy to do much! I hope tonight is restful for you! 3d
Andrea4 @BarbaraBB I imagine tonight or tomorrow may involve some hard crashing...that will be so lovely! Hopefully your insomnia isn't too bad! 3d
Andrea4 @Crazeedi I understand that- depending on the day /night sometimes I can push through others not so much. Today I might hit that 2nd wind and become all giddy lol. Here's hoping we both get rest soon! 3d

Read yesterday and though it has a juvenile tone, this makes sense given the age of Selena and that it is "the beginning." I would continue reading this one and see how it develops.

Meh, liked the art and most of the starting concept but the dialogue seemed really stilted and it seemed the storyline might become to juvenile. Probably won't continue unless someone I really trust tells me it gets a lot better.

So in case anyone is wondering, it takes less than an hour to break my heart 🥺🥺🥺💔💔💔💔
I'm not really sure why I chose to listen to this on a grey evening when I'm so tired that the slightest of winds could probably provoke tears but there you have it.
It's amazing the depth of feeling and character Proulx conveys in such a short story. And I feel that many are all too familiar with the feeling of having let time slip by.

3. Do we mean in general? Or while I'm actively reading what pulls my attention? B/c if it's a good book not much. But in general, then all the other hobbies I have, work, life, lol!
4. Probably coffee, water, and/or tea and I'm not a big snack while I read person.

Considering the 3 generation story and switching POV, I'd thought this would be confusing as an #audiobook or in general but it wasn't at all! I loved the eeriness and how, honestly, this kept me guessing and ended up surprising me. I'd spun out a bunch of different, plausible "solutions" and turns out it was the one I least suspected. I'm excited now for The Winter People!

I don't read many trilogies but this wrapped up like I would like them too- not saccharine but not in a devastating-all-is-ended-forever way, which makes sense IMO because I dont think that's how anything works.
I believe the 2nd and 3rd were my favourites- less whiney, annoying Q.C. 🤣

BookishTrish I took it to mean when we first fall in love we present a curated version of ourselves that may not be true 2mo
Andrea4 @Clwojick @llwheeler @DannyHattan @Lindy I disagree too if this is done purposefully, but like @BookishTrish suggested, it isn't always intentional. I think, especially in this case, it's about a lot of the promises that get made in complete honesty but over time can't hold and thus could be considered lies. 2mo
Mdargusch So cynical! No! I totally disagree. 2mo
FantasyChick I agree 100%. Like @BookishTrish said, it isn't intentional but I do believe there are only a rare few that show their true selves during the "falling in love" stage. Instead, we tend to show a self that is more toned down or complimentary to our other half. Again, probably non-intentional but all too common. 2mo

DannyHattan I‘m going with Earth, so much you can do with it 😂 @LibrarianRyan 2mo
DannyHattan Oh and what are you choosing @Andrea4 🤗 2mo
Andrea4 @DannyHattan I've thought about that often...what powers the different elements might yield. I feel strongly that I would either be made of earth or wind. I don't know what it is about standing in gusting wind, but it makes me feel free. 2mo
Andrea4 @DannyHattan and what exactly would you "do" if you were made of earth? 2mo
DannyHattan @Andrea4 consume everything!!! 😂 it‘s brilliant watching nature reclaim developed parts of the world. Love seeing that. 2mo
LibrarianRyan @DannyHattan toss up. Fire, because as I have the power to destroy, I also have the power to create. I can be effected by the changing winds of time, but also venerable to the elements. But then I also think metal. All are strong, but some flexible, moldable. It can be changed as needs demand. Yes metal can be used for war, but also for protection. So no easy answer. 2mo
Mdargusch I am drawn to water so I‘m going with that. It‘s gives life but there is a power behind it too. 2mo
Andrea4 @DannyHattan best answer! Slow 👏 2mo
Andrea4 @LibrarianRyan if you had to choose between metal and fire, do you have a gut reaction? 2mo
Andrea4 @Mdargusch water is lovely! And so mercurial, though really so are all the elements. 2mo
LibrarianRyan @Andrea4 I think my gut says metal. Josh says fire. 2mo
Andrea4 @LibrarianRyan 🤣👍 2mo

On this extremely dreary, quiet Easter Friday, I'm being kept company by the golem and the jinni ❤
Lovely that I can go on such amusing walks in my mind.

Mdargusch It‘s gloomy here too. At least the birds are singing! 2mo

1. Either Hannah from Rat Queens or April from Lumberjanes 🤣
2. Well, I agree with others, Umbridge was pretty bad but also maybe Holden Caufield...f*ck that guy annoys me!!
3. A Second Look- DTK :)
