Splash du Jour: Monday

Life. How easily everyone, including himself, said the word. Life must go on, everyone routinely agreed. And yet how few asked what it was, and why it was, and if it was the only life or the mere amphitheatre to something quite different. Arthur was frequently baffled by the complacency with which people went on with… with what they insouciantly called their lives, as if both the word and the thing made perfect sense to them.
-- Julian Barnes, Arthut & George --

Have a great Monday!

I've been thinking I should read his The Sense of an Ending - Have you?
I've got a 'review' up on The World Without You by Joshua Henkin; such a great book. Stop by if you get a mo.
