“What is it like?"

"What is what like?"

"Death. What is death like?"

"He is quiet and still, and oh, so peaceful. Fear will no longer hold any sway over you, nor will worry or sadness. Can you think of a time when you were especially tired? Perhaps after a long day of travel? Do you remember how lovely it was to climb into your feather bed that night? How grateful your tired limbs were? How welcoming it felt? How delicious to close your eyes and finally rest?"


"It is just like that.”
Robin LaFevers, Mortal Heart

“When one has made as many mistakes as I have, one becomes very familiar with the fullness of God's grace and mercy.”
Robin LaFevers, Mortal Heart

“Pajamas? Poor people don’t wear pajamas. We fall asleep in our underwear or blue jeans. To this day, I find the very notion of pajamas an unnecessary elite indulgence, like caviar or electric ice cube makers.”
J.D. Vance, Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis

Karma Brown
“Rose Caramels
2 1/2 cups sweet milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons chopped dried rose petals
1/2 c up molasses
1 cup granulated sugar
Heat milk, vanilla, and rose petals in a small saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain petals and cool milk mixture. Then in separate saucepan boil molasses, sugar, and milk mixture for 15 to 20 minutes. Pour mixture into greased tin and cut into small squares once cooled. An excellent hostess gift!”
Karma Brown, Recipe for a Perfect Wife

J.D. Vance
“There is no group of Americans more pessimistic than working-class whites. Well over half of blacks, Latinos, and college-educated whites expect that their children will fare better economically than they have. Among working-class whites, only 44 percent share that expectation.”
J.D. Vance, Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis
