Since returning from Peru I've been counting down the days until we leave on our Christmas trip. The weather is getting extremely uncomfortable as the heat of winter ebbs so far without the rain. Two days ago I started reading Cloud Atlas a novel by David Mitchell that will soon become (is?) a movie. There was a write up about it in Wired magazine that piqued my interests. Here are some of the quotations I thought were rather memorable from the first two chapters:
"Glass & peace alike betray proof of fragility under repeated blows."
"A half-read book is a half-finished love affair."
"That love loves fidelity, she riposted, is a myth woven by men from their insecurities."
"Faith, the least exclusive club on Earth, has the craftiest doorman."
"Whoever opined, 'Money can't buy you happiness' obviously had far too much of the stuff."
Merry Christmas everyone, looking forward to coming home!
