a book

doppo, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

I just started reading a book that Nita got for me called "A Soldier of the Great War", by Mark Helprin...I am only 72 pages in as of yesterday but i already love this book. It takes place in Italy and so far there are two characters. An old man and a young man...i am not 100% sure where the book is headed yet, but i love what has been said already and can't wait to read more. It has been a little while since i had a big book that i was excited to read so this is good. Reading this book reminds me how fun it is to get lost in a world of words and to have it also effect the way you think and feel during the day. Yesterday we had an amazing thunder storm and I got to sit on the porch and read and listen to the was perfect.

A good way to finish the weekend I suppose. What's that you say? its Monday??? oh boy...well, ok, here we go...Funny to look back on last monday which seems like ages ago, and think that I felt so differently, but that is the amazing part of life, how we can go through the huge range of thoughts and emotions in only a few days. We can process so much if we let it be processed. And so, on this monday, I got up a bit earlier than usual, it is a beautiful day, the sun is golden and the coffee is grand and on this day i will be a bit lighter.

Love and Understanding.
