i had never read ann patchett nor had i ever read a book where the muse was a friend. there's something so rich and unmined about friendship, especially-I think-between women. I loved this. Every page.

“Appreciation is the purest,strongest form of love. It is the outward-bound kind of love that asks for nothing and gives everything.”
Kelly Corrigan, The Middle Place

“If John Lennon was right that life is what happens when you're making other plans, parenthood is what happens when everything is flipped over and spilling everywhere and you can't find a towel or a sponge or your "inside" voice.”
Kelly Corrigan, Lift

“Even when all the paperwork-a marriage license, a notarized deed, two birth certificates, and seven years of tax returns-clearly indicates you're an adult, but all the same, there you are, clutching the phone and thanking God that you're still somebody's daughter.”
Kelly Corrigan, The Middle Place
