Friday Flowers #2
A few links to things I enjoyed this week, that I think you might enjoy, too. Plus some pictures of pretty flowers.
“Some people don’t talk about their dead. But I find that six months later, not only can I not stop talking about him, I can’t stop wielding him, or what was his, all around me, a sword against the grief.”
“A slow walk won’t buttress your certitudes — more likely the opposite, imbuing the mundane with wonder and magnifying the world’s extraordinary complexity. There are great wonders out there for anyone who decides to go look at the world, particularly a stretch you think you already know, at three miles an hour.”
“The site feels a little emptier, though certainly not dead. More like the part of the dinner party when only the serious drinkers remain. Whiskey is being poured into wineglasses, and the cheese plate has become an ashtray.”
“[Fitzgerald’s] writing about what his faith means to him is as nuanced and thoughtful as the prose penned by some practicing Catholics trying to bring others to the church.”
