Such terrific writing. For a novel that's largely a romance, this felt like a story of surprising substance and character (without moralizing).

The lackluster writing just doesn't support the extremely simple plot. An charming interlude, in a hospice, grew on me, as the characters became closer over time.

“Power is crack cocaine for your ego and battery acid for your soul.”
David Mitchell, The Bone Clocks

Terence McKenna
“Half the time you think your thinking you’re actually listening”
Terence McKenna

“When I die
Give what’s left of me away
To children
And old men that wait to die.

And if you need to cry,
Cry for your brother
Walking the street beside you
And when you need me,
Put your arms
Around anyone
And give to them
What you need to give to me.

I want to leave you something,
Something better
Than words
Or sounds.

Look for me
In the people I’ve known
Or loved,
And if you cannot give me away,
At least let me live in your eyes
And not on your mind.

You can love me most
By letting
Hands touch hands
By letting
Bodies touch bodies
And by letting go
Of children
That need to be free.

Love doesn’t die,
People do.
So, when all that’s left of me
Is love,
Give me away”
Merrit Malloy

Philip Yancey
“Stanley Hauerwas, named “America’s best theologian” by Time magazine, summed up the problem: “I have come to think that the challenge confronting Christians is not that we do not believe what we say, though that can be a problem, but that what we say we believe does not seem to make any difference for either the church or the world.”
Philip Yancey, Vanishing Grace: What Ever Happened to the Good News?
