I must have been good this year b/c I've been having great reading karma. You know when you pass on a good book and get a GREAT book back! So I passed Ashworth Hall to Deborah, Nate's littlest sister, who just graduated from HS (CONGRATS DEB!!) And she gave me THREE CUPS OF TEA in return. An incredibly uplifting book about a man who builds schools for girls in Afghanistan. My karma kept getting better b/c I'd just watched Charlie Wilson's War (WARNING: DON'T WATCH THE FIRST SCENE) Charlie Wilson has very questionable ethics-and they make their point--but that is the truth of the movie? I know not an excuse. It does give you a historical perspective on Afghanistan (Don't worry Nate didn't watch-I'm a great censor)
All that to say I LOVE-when life, art & literature all intersect.
P.S. No, I didn't receive any $ from Amazon.com in the making of this post. But if you know how I could--please share the love!
