I'm barely into it and am feeling such a connection to her. Her life-long love of books, writers, bookstores, authors and the city of Los Angeles. It begins in the 1970's. I remember her then. I was a teenager...and I remember her in that era.
It makes me think of this quote, discovered in the library of the local community college where I once worked,
"How many man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book" ~Henry David Thoreau, A Week on the Concord River, 1849
It's cooler tonight, A slight breeze is blowing through the open windows.
Still not feeling well, I think I will go tuck in to read and rest and sleep... with this book in my hands and my mom in my heart.
Earlier tonight this quote came new to me, from an old friend.
As Ram Dass says,
“What it boils down to is this, we’re all just walking each other home.”
