well that was uplifting. i'm interested in some of the choices he made in writing this and i'm looking forward to thinking about it and talking it out. there are some really, really beautiful passages here, which is in such contrast to the material. kind of fascinating."Not all dying words are true and this blessing is no less real for being shorn of its ground.""Where you've nothing else construct ceremonies out of the air and breathe upon them.""He thought each memory recalled must do some violence to its origins. As in a party game. Say the word and pass it on. So be sparing. What you alter in the remembering has yet a reality, known or not.""Where men cant live gods fare no better."
