A long time ago I read this passage in a novel. Then I read it again. Have you ever come across someone else’s simple little story and been deeply affected by it or felt so connected to the feelings portrayed that the whole thing could just as easily be your own?
I marked the page these words were on and kept coming back to them. Then I typed the passage and printed it and put it in my keepsakes box. Every time I come across it I read it again and marvel at how much I like it and then I return it to the box.
After all this time I don’t know who wrote it or what book it came out of. If you recognize it I will happily share the source.
Funny how a random little snippet from a fictional life seemed like something worth saving, and how it never loses its charm for me.
And that’s my Saturday blurb of randomness for this week! Hope you’re having a great weekend.
Edited to add- it is from The Pull of the Moon by Elizabeth Berg….thanks oregana
