Hmmm, a few personal highlights from last week:
1. We planted our garden (in rubber maid containers!).
2. I’ve started practicing the piano again. I swear “this time” I’m going finally stick with it.
3. I re-read A River Runs Through It.
Look, I get Norman Mclean is not anywhere near veg friendly. I mean, the whole novella is about fly fishing. But his writing is soothing & beautiful. (I wish he had written more.) And though it goes into way more detail than I would ever care to know about fly fishing, the story is really about his relationship with his brother (I admit, it’s even more fun to read when I have the image of Brad Pitt as Paul) & his dad.
The last lines of the story are the best:
Eventually, all things merge into one, & a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood & runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, & some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters.
A River Runs Through It, pg. 104
