Here we are - despite the delays, the confusion, and the shadows en route - at last, or for the moment, where we always intended to be.
Lately, my reading has been focused on words that are compact, beautiful and in a smaller package by two authors. I've had a love for years with short stories and essays. They do magic for me without the guilt of not finishing...these I can always finish.
The first pick is Colm Toibin's The Empty Family which has been hitting the mark perfectly. His books are full of irresistable, gorgeous writing and scenerios that only Toibin can convey so so eloquently. The second pick is M.F.K. Fisher's The Art of Eating, a solid volume of 5 books. In the past, there has been some wonderful dabbling in reading her stories, but now I'm ready for each and every single one. Savoring the delicious words of this brilliant lady is fulfilling. To say the least, I'm enchanted with both books these days.
