Lenten Feeling

I'm reading William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying and am hoping to finish the novel before we set off on our trip. To close one book and open another. It is so fraught with the moral pains a family endures when experiencing life and death; this is what makes it so poignant to me because people don't talk about this subject in the open that often. What a fragile time we have here to live and enjoy and share that joy with others and discover for ourselves.
