This finally finishes the Booker 2020 longlist for me. It checks off some boxes. Healthy same-sex relationships and parenting. Interesting ideas mixed into some story context. It's good, but in an ok-good sort of way. Philosophical in that sterile doctor-office-clean prose way. It has an interesting ending and I probably should think more about it. More likely I won‘t think much about it at all.

vivastory Ha! I felt the same way about it. Wanted to like it more than I did. Interesting concept, not sure about the execution 12h
Graywacke @vivastory it's oddly difficult to express that. I mean I did enjoy listening. There isn't enough there. (but, the quotes before each chapter were wonderful.) 10h
vivastory I've thought about reading it again at some point, but I haven't quite convinced myself. It was thought provoking while reading but didn't stay with me. 9h
Graywacke @vivastory i‘ve thoroughly convinced myself not to. ☺️ 9h

I‘m still a little too wobbly to get back to walking in parks or even in my hilly neighborhood, but there‘s also a certain grace to walking inside on a track at the community center. #beginswith #one

Does it count if you‘re a 43-year old child who celebrated with a B&N gift card spree, a few episodes of Gilmore Girls, and a bowl of hot lentil soup on a cold winter‘s day?

Something new I‘m trying, doodling while reading.

Reyzl

“I don‘t live in either my past or my future. I‘m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you‘ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we‘re living now”

quote
Reyzl

“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked.
“Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.”
