I like how you broaden your horizons, Wosbald! And it can't get any more horizon-broadening than the studying the universe itself (so far as I know).

'Twas very good. And it bears upon many of the subjects bandied around here, especially as of late.

Prolly not much of a surprise that I found the section by Unger (the philosopher) much easier-going than the one by Smolin (the theoretical physicist). I was able to muddle through Smolin's part, and it was certainly worth reading. But I surely didn't get as much from it as a science geek would've.

I'm enjoying short stories... I feel frenzied about keeping up with life right now, so I'm glad that art form exists.

"A Hint of an Explanation" by Graham Greene
"The Jilting of Granny Weatherall" by Katherine Anne Porter
"A Temple of the Holy Ghost" by Flannery O'Connor (re-read) and
"Rothschild's Fiddle" by Anton Chekov

To.. keep your eyes open, my love!"
~NEEDTOBREATHE

"Now, if faith is the gaze of the heart at God, and if this gaze is but the raising of the inward eyes to meet the all-seeing eyes of God, then it follows that it is one of the easiest things possible to do. It would be like God to make the most vital thing easy and place it within the range of possibility for the weakest and poorest of us."

Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte

I'd forgotten how much there is to love in this book; or let's just say I had forgotten this book, and stop at that.
I am like 50 pages in, and ecstatic.

Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson. Recommended by Linna Heartlistener. Stunningly beautiful language. Theologically geek-worthy. Mesmerizing. Few books "speak" from the main character so clearly; comparable to Orual in Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis. I am going to write an anti-recommendation.

When did you first read "Till We Have Faces," deer?
And why didn't I think of writing an anti-recommendation of that sooner?!?

In my reading, I'm nibbling away at bits of different things like "Life Together" by Dietrich Bonhoffer, and children's books I never read, like "The Secret Garden," and an Ezekiel commentary by Charles Lee Feinberg.
Also still on "Jane Eyre"... put it aside a bit...

Was reading: "What's Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done," by Matt Perman

Read a super-short YA fiction story, "Missing May."
Super-short but, I think, beautiful prose.

Currently reading short stories from:
Collected Stories and Other Writings of Katherine Anne Porter
