What a weird week, all the way around. The weather started out cold, gray and rainy with slush snow on Wednesday and has changed quickly to bright sun and warm temperatures. Apparently we had the coldest March in 30 years.
I ended up with some nasty food-born thing on Wednesday night, suffered through Thursday and by Friday felt like I’d been run over by a truck. I’m much better now and normally wouldn’t mention such a thing but I was also extremely productive as far as reviews go. It’s like my brain clicked and things started flowing. How strange?
As for what I’m reading right now. From Steer Towards Rock by Fae Myenne Ng:
“Listen. Like anybody, I believed that what I didn’t have was what I wanted most. Without a father, I had no claim to a history and I felt beneath other people. I wanted a father’s protection. When my mother mourned that there was no son to avenge his death, my grief doubled. Why was it that a son could offer blood but a daughter could only offer tears? Why was a daughter a spiritual orphan? Why did a daughter float between natal and marital families?” Page 83-84.
Have a wonderful week! You can find out more about Sunday Salon here.
