Read in January, 2003

Beautifully written and depressing. Not something to read if you're looking for a good time.

It reminds me of a song by Patty Griffin, Poor Man's House. The stories are different but the themes are the same for me...difficult to break the cycles of life into which we're born and unbelievably sad (I suppose sadder still is that both stories are believable and are real for many people).

You can click here to listen to a cover version of the song instead and then move on to something else. Click here for the lyrics.
