Preparing to leave this old porch for a while...

Listening  to  Barksins is so over-viewing history. Very interesting but not intimate as in Shipping News.
Reading Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. The writing is educating me into a different view of black in America. I am gobsmacked by the idea that peaceful passivity is another form of slavery.
I saw the movie The Fundamentals of Caring. I do not cry much over fictional characters. This movie made me cry so hard and ugly. Paul Rudd, Selena Gomez and Craig Roberts.
Miss my family. Heart actually hurts, here.

Quote I came across by Agatha Christie whom I have never been interested in reading but might just try. 
I like living. I have been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
I think this quite sums up how I feel about life!
