I love this author. She hits head on the "isims" that plague our society. This story was beautiful and passionate.

Another I picked from the library.

I was amazed by Ma's ability to survive, she nurtured Jack and kept him healthy both physically and emotionally in extreme hardship.
Great read.

Mary Anne Radmacher
“speak quietly to yourself & promise there will be better days. whisper gently to yourself and provide assurance that you really are extending your best effort. console your bruised and tender spirit with reminders of many other successes. offer comfort in practical and tangible ways - as if you were encouraging your dearest friend. recognize that on certain days the greatest grace is that the day is over and you get to close your eyes. tomorrow comes more brightly...”
Mary Anne Radmacher

Aldous Huxley
“But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Aldous Huxley
“Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn't nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Mary Anne Radmacher
“stand often in the company of dreamers: they tickle your common sense & believe you can achieve things which are impossible.”
Mary Anne Radmacher

Mary Anne Radmacher
“at the start of our together you were the prelude to a vast orchestration. at the end of it all you will have been the most profound and enduring music of my life.”
