Independence Day Special

3d-wooden-wallIt's been nearly 228 years since Fin Button, Jeannot Botolph, and the ragged crews of the Rattlesnake and the Esprit de la Mer helped bring an end to the American Revolution. I visited Ebenezer, Georgia last month to pay my respects and I'm happy to report that the church that Peter built is still standing. The oldest continuous congregation in the country still meets there every Sunday.

“…time has a way of leading a person along a crooked path. Sometimes the path is hard to hold to and people fall off along the way. They curse the road for its steep grades and muddy ruts and settle themselves in hinterlands of thorn and sorrow, never knowing or dreaming that the road meant all along to lead them home. Some call that road a tragedy and lose themselves along it. Others, those that see it home, call it an adventure.”
A.S. Peterson, The Fiddler's Gun

“Beautiful, that's what you got to do with that hurtin', you got to turn it beautiful.”
A.S. Peterson, The Fiddler's Gun

“He poured all his pain into the void of the violin and gently worked it out, turned it to beauty.”
A.S. Peterson, The Fiddler's Gun

Sarah Clarkson I love Strange & Norrell's charm, and the strangeness of its beauty. It's a world of a book, if that makes any sense, a bit like Lord of the Rings. You live as well as read it. And I love it that it is something like 800 pages. Modern books are usually so short you never have enough time to fall in love with their setting or characters.

I was a little thrown by the way it ended, but my only real complaint is that I wanted to meet John Uskglass in full. I felt rather haunted by him throughout the story.
