I've been slowly reading this book since January! So here's where I'm starting #24in48 by trying to kill another chapter. Chapter 11 - Gender, Race, and Modernism after the Second World War.

I wanted it to be clear that I wasn't altering my course from contemporary christian music because I was gay ... I wanted to be transparent in that what I hoped to achieve as a career songwriter lay beyond that world. My aspirations were not to write songs about my faith; I wanted to write about everything..If Jesus were to ever inspire a lyric again, He'd have to hold his own without predictable clichés"

This book was gorgeously written and contained within it's pages a story of generations, love, change and stagnation. Absolutely beautiful.

Encyclopedia of Cats | Candida Frith-Macdonald

Baseler. The reason our dining room chairs have dishtowels on them. #catsoflitsy

quote

"Sardar is still as silent, Talla talkative. That is how they balance their world, between the laconic confidence of a man who has faith in life and the chattering mistrust of a woman who expects a new misfortune to appear every day"

"And Talla speaks for two because everything is necessary to make up a life, and nothing can replace anything else. And a misunderstood silence is more brutal than the most spiteful words, the void it creates more empty than any unspeaking mouth." #europaeditions

Only two poems in and this book already has me completely.

From the Jacket. "Magdalene imagines the biblical figure of Mary Magdalene as a woman who embodies the spiritual and sensual, alive in a contemporary landscape.."

I have a bunch of books I want to get to during Black History Month but I'm having a hard time focusing on things with the current state of dumpster fire our country is in so I'm reading my first Beverly Jenkins instead.

My between Christmas and New Years read.

blurb

post image

"Following any loss there comes a moment when you shift from mourning; if you continued to linger in grief, you couldn't function. So little at a time, you create a so-called new normal, although there's nothing normal about it. With a gaping hole in your life, you move on"

quote

"In some ways, the heartache we feel for our loved ones is deeper, rawer, than any we could feel for ourselves. Witnessing my father in such despair still haunts me to this day"
