“In my arms is a woman who has given me a Skywatcher's Cloud Chart, a woman who knows all my secrets, a woman who knows just how messed up my mind is, how many pills I'm on, and yet she allows me to hold her anyway. There's something honest about all this, and I cannot imagine any other woman lying in the middle of a frozen soccer field with me - in the middle of a snowstorm even - impossibly hoping to see a single cloud break free of a nimbostratus.”- Silver Linings Playbook
Welcome spring! I'm so glad you're here. We all made it through the winter. The weather has been BEAUTIFUL! Tonight I finished reading The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick. Silver Linings Playbook is intense, heartbreaking and positive. Beautifully written, the book won me over from the start. The ending paragraph moved me. Earlier this week, I read Still Point of the Turning World by Emily Rapp, about a mother whose son dies before his first birthday of Tay–Sachs disease. It was sad but very honest and well-crafted.
