Winter one day, Spring the next. Sometimes in the same day.
Things are in flux everywhere and in every possible way. I'm torn between wanting to be an ostrich with my head in the sand and wanting to keep up with the news and stay aware and concerned about what is happening.
I just saw this quote on Sharon Davidson Art. It reminds me again about resilience. There is so much we can't control: climate, political divisiveness, spreading anger about...everything, anything. Let go. Walk on. "...go straight ahead with the movement of life."
“Whether we like it or not, change comes, and the greater the resistance, the greater the pain. Buddhism perceives the beauty of change, for life is like music in this: if any note or phrase is held for longer than its appointed time, the melody is lost.
Thus Buddhism may be summed up in two phrases: “Let go!” and “Walk on!” Drop the craving for self, for permanence, for particular circumstances, and go straight ahead with the movement of life.”
Always the mysteries and thrillers. Finished the Stephen King Mr. Mercedes trilogy: Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch (although I read End of Watch several years ago, I had not read the previous books. Also, I'd forgotten a great deal).
Louisa Luna's 3rd Alice Vega installment Hideout.
Behind the Wire, the latest DI Declan Walsh book by Jack Gatland.
More in the Grimm Up North series by David J. Gatward. I read these like candy.
Currently reading Carville's Cure: Leprosy, Stigma, and the Fight for Justice by Pam Fessler. I was curious about the leprosarium in Carville in Iberville Parish, but I did not expect this nonfiction account to be so fascinating. I can imagine at least three movies and/or documentaries being made about Carville and some of its patients, doctors, and Daughters of Charity nurses.
Mail: Keeping up with InCoWriMo has been a bit of a struggle, but it has been fun finding more in the mailbox than usual!
