Another Post of a Tired Mind

Reading: The Book Thief. Written for teens. Gritty. Holocaust. About a 12 year old girl. Told from Death's perspective. Death has a sense of humor. The story feels poetic, free versed.

Watched: Oh Brother, Where Art Thou. Love the music. Actors were amazing. The story was brilliant. Hilarious and dark all at once. Now I need to find out about Odyssey.

Change: Last day of teaching happened on Thursday (24th). I've been sad all day about not seeing my students every week. It's a good thing but a sorrowful thing... ::sigh::

Learning: About not complaining and being joyful. Loving my husband more and more.

Glad to hear from some more fans. :) I enjoy books that bring interesting perspective into my life. :) And yes, it is brilliant. There are other words for it but that one pretty well sums it up.
