Happy Sunday Reading

The incoming mail turned up a nice note recently from a blog reader:

"Since I recently provided an unintentional assist in a club soda purge of your nasal passages (removes stains from carpets and table linens, TOO!) I thought I might be forgiven for bringing a favorite parable to your attention. (I confess to being a bit disillusioned that you admitted in cold print to have been drinking club soda - which I think of as Vodka-Helper).

I know from reading your blog that you read widely outside your cherished (felonious, blood-spattered) genres, so while recently re-reading Jean Giono's "The Man Who Planted Trees" for the umpteenth time, it occurred to me that you might appreciate this taut and lovely little tale.

I expect that it is likely that you have already read it, but on the off chance you haven't, I include a link."

I had not read it, but have now.

A lovely lovely story for a Sunday afternoon.

Happy Reading!

Barely 8am on Sunday and I read the story.
It makes me feel as if I just got out of church.
Amen

That was a wonderful story. I wish I could see those trees for myself... and maybe plant a few acorns as well.
