  •  Thank you, Mark Sumner (11+ / 0-)

    This touches me and my life on so many levels (one especially poignant - the idyllic family farm in KY where I was raised - was taken by eminent domain at one point and now is buried in a mountain of dirt under an interchange over the Licking River as the highway circles Cincinnati).  My parents died before that happened.  They would have perished of sadness if they had been alive - honestly.

    I am now older and just faced the death of my housemate and best and closest friend.  I moved out of his house (mortgage under water) and write this in a sad, but nice, one bedroom apartment full of boxes of my things.  I have been here a week.  I haven't unpacked.  Depressed - but coping.  I will make it, but things look bleak and I am fortunate my son and his family are nearby and check in often.  They moved me as my health is not the best.  They will help me unpack (school starts Tuesday here) next week.  They are my Angels.

    I would think this book would be too much for me to handle.  It sounds wonderful, however.  Touching and deeply moving.
