There are actually two sections in this book, and the first was.... okay, but not enough to keep me going. Just not my thing.

This does not feel like something from 1924, for the most part. Yes, it is somewhat dated, and has the casual racism of its era. But she is meticulously taking apart the idea that all women are best suited to be housewives and that all men are good ...more

My book group picked this book because the author was coming to speak locally (before self-isolation/quarantine/everything got canceled). I was originally a little dubious about this, and the magical realism twist in the middle left me even more so. ...more

This was a little slow to get started, but then I thoroughly enjoyed it.

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I sit beside the fire and think
Of all that I have seen
Of meadow flowers and butterflies
In summers that have been

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
In autumns that there were
With morning mist and silver sun
And wind upon my hair

I sit beside the fire and think
Of how the world will be
When winter comes without a spring
That I shall ever see

For still there are so many things
That I have never seen
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green

I sit beside the fire and think
Of people long ago
And people that will see a world
That I shall never know

But all the while I sit and think
Of times there were before
I listen for returning feet
And voices at the door”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“Nothing
would be
easier without
you,
because you
are
everything,
all of it-
sprinkles, quarks, giant
donuts, eggs sunny-side up-
you
are the ever-expanding
universe
to me.”
Kate DiCamillo, Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures

Ernestine Gilbreth Carey
“Someone once asked Dad: “But what do you want to save time for? What are you going to do with it?” “For work, if you love that best,” said Dad. “For education, for beauty, for art, for pleasure.” He looked over the top of his pince-nez. “For mumblety-peg, if that's where your heart lies.”
