Whew! Yesterday’s reading was intense. I read more of Cosmicomics and encountered Death. Italo Calvino gets to the bottom line. Then the Kindle book I pre-ordered arrived late in the evening, so I read that. It is a very quick read, and worth buying for the beauty in it – it also has a lot of grief. Fredrick Backman gets to the heart of the matter. I’ve mashed the two stories – Death and And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer – together and, now that my #worldwatercolorgroup and #inktober commitments are over, I’m back to drawing Ama. There is no suggested musical accompaniment because both of these readings are intense enough – I wouldn’t want you to explode from emotion. I do hope you dance because, after we look Death in the eye, there’s nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.
