As I said earlier this week in this Facebook post. this has been a really sucky week. Not just that life is what happens when you’re making other plans, but that life is sometimes too damn short.
When I’m confronted with something I can’t get past or over, my usual response is to retreat into a good book. This week was no exception. I didn’t realize it until afterwards, but the book I retreated into, Murder in Montparnasse by Kerry Greenwood, was also a perfect book for Veterans Day, AKA Remembrance Day, celebrated yesterday on the anniversary of “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month” marking the end of hostilities of World War I.
I do have a week of lovely books to look forward to. I know because I’ve finished two and am in the middle of the third. But I’m planning to make plenty of time to hug my husband, pet the cat (and be hugged and kissed by the cat, which is strange, surprising and very sweet) and get in touch with friends. Life is short.
