I read a lot of horror, and would rather not visit any of those places, if I happened to find myself in one of those worlds, I'd run like hell.

If I had to pick a place I think it would be the fiction world created by Fredrik Backman, in his novel My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry. It was a strange place, full of emotions and grief, but the community of neighbors took care of each other. (less)

One hell of a christmasWow, I was looking back at my last post, and thought has it been that long since I’ve posted something? Sad but true, and to those few faithful followers I say thank you for sticking by me and my apology for not being more on top of this blog thing.
