I was feeling nostalgic for the writing of the book and the songs of it. It's on Spotify with the book title. Narrow River, Wide Sky: A Memoir. It's the definition of eclectic.

“When we got to Mom’s casket in that small, wood-paneled room filled with caskets at 10,000 feet in elevation, I saw her surrounded by pioneer ghosts sitting on their haunches, too exhausted to look up from under their bonnets, dead babies in their arms. I heard the swishing of pebbles in hopeful mining pans –Leadville, the home of gold hunters. The mountains made of stone and money.”
Jenny Forrester, Narrow River, Wide Sky: A Memoir

“We belonged to the sandstone and snow created by change. The sands of ancient water bodies and high deserts settled and compacted by other minerals and colored by iron oxide. People traveled there to the sculpted sandstone to see it, to be changed by it, made more serene. We told stories about the place to find our place in it and grew possessive and protective, wary of too many tourists, too many hiking feet, too many souls seeking quiet salvation, adding noise with their footfalls.”
Jenny Forrester, Narrow River, Wide Sky: A Memoir

“Whatever holds our grief is massive. It’s big enough and wide enough to hold the ocean.”
Jenny Forrester, Narrow River, Wide Sky: A Memoir

“she thought maybe she’d be a rock star, but she just ended up another name on the very long list of people Lou Reed was rude to. Yeah,”
Cari Luna, The Revolution of Every Day

“The role of the artist is to ask questions, not answer them.”
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

“someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject.”
Catherine Goldhammer, Still Life With Chickens: Starting Over in a House by the Sea

“doesn't matter if the glass is half full or half empty... drink it and get on with your life.”
Catherine Goldhammer, Still Life With Chickens: Starting Over in a House by the Sea

“Depicting yourself as a whole person on the page doesn’t only mean recognizing your role in a bad situation. It means being emotionally authentic. It means showing all of yourself: the shameful parts, the embarrassing parts, the parts that you might regret or that you wish weren’t true.”
Kerry Cohen, The Truth of Memoir: How to Write about Yourself and Others with Honesty, Emotion, and Integrity
