Whenever i read different versions of ramayan though i know "Good destoys evil" but their are certain question which always popped up...

🍃How was wise kuber brought down from his throne???
🍃Where the powerful weapons describe real??
🍃Where did lord parshuram go???
🍃Where two aavatars of lord vishnu existed on earth at same time??
🍃Why did kaikiye send her beloved son on exiled?just for dashrat throne??
🍃Was sita the real reason behind ramayan??or just a cospiracy to cover the real reason from humans?

This retelling has answers to all this question😊

Guillaume Musso “CENTRINIS PARKAS”
Vieną vasaros dieną sukilo noras perskaityti kokią nors lengvą, įtraukiančią, gal kiek nuo realybės atitrūkusią istoriją. Šio noro numaldyti nupėdinau į biblioteką. Ir niekas tą kartą nelipo, bibliotekininkė rodė tai vieną, tai kitą autorių, kol galiausiai priminė, kad biblioteka užsidaro... Taip ir likau rankose su G. Musso „Centriniu parku“. Ir nuojauta šį kartą neapgavo!
Nepažįstamieji Alisa ir Gabrielius pabunda parke ant suoliuko. Surakinti antrankiais, sukruvintais drabužiais, be asmeninių daiktų, bet su ginklu, kuriame trūksta vienos kulkos… Policininkė Alisa prisimena, jog vakar su draugėmis linksminosi Paryžiuje, o džiazo muzikantas Gabrielius – koncertavo Dubline. Tad kaip ankstų kitos dienos rytą jie atsidūrė Niujorke? Nuo šio ir daugybės kitų klausimų prasideda Alisos ir Gabrieliaus jaudinanti ir pavojinga kelionė Niujorke, siekiant atrasti tiesą.
Ko jau ko, bet siužeto vingių ir daugybės detalių šiam trileriui tikrai netrūksta. Vietomis tų posūkių jau buvo net truputį per daug - istorija apie knygos vidurį man priminė holivudinį trilerį, o įsijausti tapo kiek  sudėtingiau. Įtari tai vieną, tai antrą, tai trečią neaiškų tipą, nespėji sulaikyti savo minties, o jau atsiranda naujų faktų. Vis dėlto pabaiga buvo visai netikėta ir nuoširdžiai nustebino! Galima būtų diskutuoti, kiek realus galėtų būti toks pasakojimas, bet šįkart to ir neieškojau. Perskaičiau “Centrinį parką” kaip knygą visiškam atsipalaidavimui, be analizės, gilinimosi. Man šiuo metu buvo pats tas! 
Kitą kartą, ieškodama “piliulės nuo realybės”, drąsiai imsiu Musso. Tiesa, girdėjau, kad ne visos jo knygos tokios lengvos ir kupinos veiksmo kaip “Centrinis parkas”. Kas skaitėt, ar tiesa?🤔🙂

Taking notes from @andyjpizza #creativepeptalk podcast. It’s a good one, as always but this one’s a rundown of 10 book recommendations. I’ve been binging audiobooks on my library app lately and some of these have gotten me so motivated and have really helped me clarify my creative direction. 
Two recent faves are You are a Badass by @jensincero and Perennial Seller by @ryanholiday 
How about you? Any good recommendations?? #bookrecommendations #businessbooks #motivationalbooks #selfhelp #artandcreativity #podcasts #creativebusiness #growthmindset #youcandoit #audiobooks #scottsdalepubliclibrary

//Werbung | unbeauftragt// Ihr wisst es ja inzwischen, dass ich ein kleiner #Comicfan bin. 🙋🏻‍♀️ Besonders ans Herz gewachsen ist mir die #Comic-Reihe #SAGA von der talentierten Illustratorin #FionaStaples und dem Erfinder #BrianKVaughan. SAGA ist eine Weltraum-Soap-Opera mit viel Herzschmerz und Emotionen, zwei verfeindeten Völkern, völlig abgedrehten Charakteren ebenso wie absolut liebenswerte und außergewöhnliche Figuren. 💫 Es ist ein Abenteuer durchs #Weltall, eine #SpaceOpera à la Romeo und Julia, mit fremdartigen, hochentwickelten Wesen auf Planeten fernab unserer Sonnensystems - ach was schreibe ich - fernab unserer Galaxie!

SAGA zeichnet sich durch wunderschöne Zeichnungen aus. Jedes Mal inhaliere ich auf möglichst schnelle Art und Weise einen neuen Band (denn ich MUSS doch immer wissen wie es weitergeht ….) und blättere danach noch einmal alle Seiten genüsslich durch, um den Zeichenstil von Fiona Staples genießen zu können.

Auf so vielen Ebenen ist #SAGA für mich eine tolle #Comicreihe. Sie erzählt von Liebe, Familie und Freundschaft, von Momenten, in denen man mutig sein muss, von Feindschaften, Verrat und Skrupellosigkeit, aber auch von Zusammenhalt, Toleranz und Kuriositäten. Diese Reihe inspiriert mich immer wieder auf’s Neue, sie fördert meine eigene #Phantasie, die geradezu vom Anschauen der Panels und dem Verfolgen der Story beflügelt wird. 
Saga ist Abenteuer, Liebesgeschichte, Freundschaftsbuch und beinhaltet ein Raumschiff in Baumform!

Ich bin ein ganz großer #SAGA-Fan und ihr? Welcher Comic oder welche #GraphicNovel haben euch zuletzt so sehr begeistert?

#VeryShortReview of a book which must’ve been so challenging to plot and write—and turned out so great 👌
° ° °
@authorcstarling delivers a claustrophobic, eerie and thrilling tour de force which—much like Gyre, the cave climbing (and ghost seeing) protagonist—returns a little too often to the same dark places 💀👻
° ° °
But writing a 400+ pages long book which stays almost exclusively in the rapidly deteriorating mind of one character is an enviable feat in storytelling on its own: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

We extract the good and the bad in life. Accept it. And still, remain confined to what feels familiar and ours. Books The Bell Jar must be re-read until you find it impossible to think of a time when you didn’t fall into such a lacuna. Sylvia Plath’s novel is at the center of her being. And if you’ve read her poetry, the whole thing unravels itself page after page in The Bell Jar.
.
.
Modern life doesn’t meditate on such loneliness the way this book does. The seriousness of it lives on which is wired to Sylvia’s emotions as my own. Its vocabulary consists of angst, fear, loneliness, and sadness.
.
.
Some of us feel loneliness in the lack of intimacy, some in conversations, and some in emotional support. And there are some souls that feel it all; all at once and for a long time. This stretch of time refines our sense of being, doesn’t it? And while this happens – we lose things too.
.
.
The urgency of Sylvia’s time and circumstances are deeply grounded in the book. Its characteristic quality is her seeking for answers that reality failed to provide, that relationships punctured, and society considered unspeakable.
.
.
The Bell Jar is Sylvia’s lonely voyage into self-reflection. Which often surfaces in these pages as wisdom, as courage, and as intimate fragments of her. Which only a book could contain and not the world.
The Bell Jar reminds us of life’s unwavering insignificance. Its inescapable loneliness. Which is as much yours as it is mine. And it is the measure of the things we don’t say. To read it is to grasp what’s remaining even after language ceases to exist.

#qotd- What is the darkest book you have read?
.
It is difficult to gather thoughts instantly after finishing the book. For that matter, it is not even easy to read this book at a steady pace. Playing around with the psychic developments based upon the requirements of a particular political party, this book has given voice to thoughts which could not be noted down otherwise. It's a dystopian novel and has abided by its genre so critically it is difficult to believe its primitive roots.
.
The story revolves around a man who thinks it is possible to overthrow the party, not in his lifetime, but some years, even a thousand years from now. He tries to find an underground rebellion group which can pollute the revolutionary turned dictatorial party with the thoughts of freedom. The journey of this single man is the journey of the rest of his fellow mates.
.
🔖Quote of the Book- ' #Sanity #is #not #statistical '
.
There are many iconic quotes and ideas in the book but we will settle down with only one of them now. .

#julybookishchallenge Day 22: Lesser Known #Authors on My #Shelf ... now, I’m not saying these are “Unknown” authors... most of them have a decent following. However, I do believe that they should be household names because they excel at their craft, everything I’ve read by them has been fantastic, AND they’re good people.

Where The Miniaturist failed, Silent Companions succeeded.

Silent Companions is a horror story set in 1860s and runs parallel with another story set in late 1600s. A woman in the asylum is convicted of murdering 4 people. She has gone silent until a good doctor coaxes her to speak and tell her story.

Elsie Bainbridge, post her husband's death, moves to their house in the village with her sister in law Sarah. There she finds Silent Companions (painted wooden figures. Guess where they are made? Amsterdam!) and they also discover some old diaries of Bainbridge's ancestor, who was accused of being a witch. The story then flips from past to present, the story of Anne Bainbridge, who conceives a daughter with the help of some herbs but she is born mute and consequently is to be hidden from their guests, the King and the Queen. 
The book is a mix of mystery, horror and dark secrets. The treatment against superstition and insanity, the hold of men over women legally, the Victorian and Stuart era are all described astutely.

A wonderful delight of a book!

Review + aesthetic for #BigLittleLies by Liane Moriarty. Rated 5/5. ⁣
⁣
Oh. My. Goodness. I literally couldn't put this book down. I cancelled plans this afternoon just to finish it. The characters were compelling, the twists were unpredictable, and the writing was addictive. I'm so glad I finally picked this one up and suspended my cover judgments. It's a new favorite! ⁣
⁣
This fulfills the book to film adaptation for #TheReadingRush readathon. I'll start watching the HBO series tomorrow! ⁣

I’m about a third of the way through this western novel by #JohnLarison. If you like historical fiction about homesteading, independent girls, the American West, surviving on your own, and some sad themes mixed in, then you will enjoy this one. I’m turning the pages 📖🐴⛰🥃 #bookstagram #bookrecommendations #whiskeywhenweredry

Not sure the last time I showed my face around here, or the last time I had a selfie on my grid, but this is me, Allicia. I made the necklace I am wearing for a woman’s event. I wrapped all the necklaces for the women and we prayed and asked God which woman should get which necklace. When everyone got their necklaces this one was left over.  A woman gave it to me and said this one must be for you. It came at a time when I had so many dreams and desires but I wasn’t really seeing them come to fruition. So to have the reminder from 1 Thessalonians 5:24 “He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.” given to me was just what I needed as an encouragement. Nearly 4 years later after receiving that necklace that I basically ended up making for myself, I am living out some of my deepest dreams that I had then. ⠀
-⠀
-⠀
One dream I want to share, is the dream to speak and teach young people about how loved and special they are. This selfie was taken when I came home from sharing my story at a summer camp to a group of teens today, God is so faithful. I love sharing how God has redeemed some of the darkest times in my life, how he would take a girl who hated herself and lived a life behind a mask and show her so much love and redemption she sometimes has to pinch herself. ⠀
-⠀
-⠀
I would love to share more of my story with you, how God has done so much and how He has proven time and time again that He is so faithful. If you have questions or would like to get together for a tea, send me a DM. He is faithful. Maybe today you needed to be reminded that He can do it, He hasn’t forgotten you and you are special and loved, just like I needed it that day with my necklace. ⠀

Book:  Lowcountry Bonfire (Liz Talbot #6) by Susan M Boyer 
Book 46/52 for the year

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️Time to Read:  2Day

How Did I Get It?  Digital Version via Kindle

Mini Review:  Private Investigators Liz Talbot and Nate Andrews are hired by Tammy Sue Lyerly to look into her husband Zeke.  Zeke has an elaborate past and the investigators doubt they will find much.  But when Zeke winds up dead, Tammy Sue becomes the main suspect.  They must uncover old secrets and find the real killer.

This is book six in the Liz Talbot series.  I found the case to be really interesting but Liz took some major liberties with the law especially while consulting with the police.  The book was still entertaining but a bit flat.

I picked up this gorgeous little display box off a clearance rack and honestly am soo happy with it!! It's the perfect place to display my time turner when it's not in use ⏳💫
🔸️
QOTD: If you could use a time turner, would you and where would you go?
AOTD: I would probably take a page out of Hermiones book (haha) and use it to free up time for classes!! I could have my uni degree done in no time and still have time to read 😂

Ok I'm not going to lie but I originally picked up "The Burning" by Laura Bates because of its stunning cover and my gosh am I glad I did because I loved this book.
"A rumour is like a fire. You might think you’ve extinguished it but one creeping, red tendril, one single wisp of smoke is enough to let it leap back into life again. Especially if someone is watching, waiting to fan the flames..." Anna and her mother have fled to Scotland after a mysterious incident at Anna's old school. At first it looks like life is getting back on track until a Anna's secret is out and she decides this time she's not running. This book shows unapologetically how bullying has moved from the classroom to online. I also really enjoyed how through a history project Anna found her story drawing parallels to that of a young women called Maggie accused of witchcraft centuries before.
I really enjoyed how this book flowed and how the author only revealed piece by piece the full story of both Anna and Maggie. I was completely hooked on this book and read it in one sitting. Highly recommend this read.
📚 What was the last book you read in one sitting? 📚

Sonya Lalli’s The Matchmaker’s List follows the story of Raina, who finds herself suffocated by the never ending list of potential partners curated by her nani (grandmother)📝👵🏼. At almost 30, the pressure to get married is ON. The book follows the crazy rollercoaster that is her life and the decisions and struggles she is forced to make in order to create a life she truly loves. ❣️ This is one book I would be very happy to see a sequel to👀 I enjoyed it immensely! It had a perfect balance of romance, comedy, and realness. I loved reading a romance novel that strayed away from all the basic tropes that we’re used to.

Like many other interesting things in life - systems are both art and science. Science because they all have constant elements - stocks, interconnected by flows, balancing and reinforcing feedback loops - in place to meet a purpose. But their self-organization, dynamic and non-linear nature, is what makes them an art. Systems are reductions, incomplete interpretations of the real world. To get the most out of them we must embrace being surprised by their outcomes that don't always match our equations and analysis. Countless permutations of what may come of a system is to be imagined and embraced as much as it is to be calculated and measured. .

It's easy to feel like we can't make a difference. But small, easy actions, if taken by enough people, can move mountains- and save our wonderful planet.

The hate you give is such an important book it mainly talks about racism, class and activism within a black community in the US. I highly recommend it.

“People come in and out of your life. For a time they are your world; they are everything. And then one day they’re not. There’s no telling how long you will have them near.” Such a cute book!

In junior high, I went to my first stage play at the local community college and immediately fell in love with theater. My super strong aversion to public speaking (read: try not to pass out) would prevent me from ever standing in the spotlight. This fear makes me appreciate and be in awe of those that have that confidence so much more.
⭐️ Samantha Goodwin's "Murder at Macbeth" is a captivating mystery with plenty of Shakespearean flair.

I’ve never been much of a Clementine Ford fan, actually.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know everyone will hate me for saying it, but I find her writing and attitude a bit too intense and I disagree with much of what she says. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m a HUGE feminist [of course] and think books on feminism need to be written and read by everyone in the whole entire world. BUT, I’m unsure if Clementine does it in a way I respect / like - sorry to all her big fans.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you like Clementine Ford, then go ahead and read the book.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re like me and #notsuchafan, then definitely don’t 👍

The Vampire’s Last Lover by Aiden James

Txema Ybarra is the most unenviable nineteen-year-old girl alive.

Smart, pretty, and athletically gifted, this University of Tennessee freshman should be enjoying college life and her entrance into adulthood. And for a moment she does…until the vampires show up.

*I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review*
This book truly is something. Amber has amazing world building skills! So the book starts off with Theo, god of war, walking with a sledge hammer on his shoulder. I knew it would be a good book from that moment on. The way the gods were written reminded me of Greek mythology with a normal family who don’t marry each other! There are some major family issues you’ll fine out about. After Theo does his thing with the sledge hammer we meet Cassia. Cassia is an orphan who this her brother is dead. Cassia’s brother supposedly started this war and she is pretty much exiled. When she’s drugged by the zealots (man these people are crazy I tell you) her world flips. Cassia has to deal with everything that’s happened and why is Theo here too? This book was amazing and had one of the best romances. I would totally recommend this!

After Theo does his thing with the sledge hammer we meet Cassia. Cassia is an orphan who this her brother is dead. Cassia’s brother supposedly started this war and she is pretty much exiled. When she’s drugged by the zealots (man these people are crazy I tell you) her world flips. Cassia has to deal with everything that’s happened and why is Theo here too? This book was amazing and had one of the best romances. I would totally recommend this! . . . #fragilechaos #amberduell #bookreview #reviewer #bookstgram #books #bookrecommendations #bookworm #bookaesthetic

We wanted to keep you updated on what the Brainchild team is loving this summer, so we decided to create the new series #BrainchildRecommends! Our first recommendation comes from Brainchild alumnus Ellie. She recommends John Steinbeck’s East of Eden: “Obviously, we all know and love Grapes of Wrath, but this lesser known brother is highly underrated.  There are numerous themes in the book, but for me, at this point in my life, the theme addressing expectations versus reality was most intriguing.  The book focuses on expectations we have for relationships, careers, and ultimately our purpose in life.” Relating the novel to her own life, Ellie adds, “East of Eden grounded me to the reality of life at a time when my expectations ceased to hold me up.” Our 2019 issue available around Kent State University’s campus now. Check out the wonderful art we have to share with you! Submissions for our 2020 issue will open up later this fall.

The Woman In The Window by A. J. Finn ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

A story about a woman who lives with agoraphobia and can not leave her house. She believes she witnessed a horrible murder of her neighbor which may have not happened. 
I found the story to be slightly underwhelming. At times it felt like the plot was going in different directions. Things were happening that didn’t add to the story. Her character kept making me roll my eyes with her decisions and behavior. But she is a tragic character. Her story was heartbreaking.

I had drawn many theories about what I thought had happened. And all of my theories were wrong. Which I liked. The ending was good and not what I expected to happen. I love a not predictable story.

The Cuckoo’s Calling
by Robert Galbraith (AKA J.K. Rowling)
Performance: 4/5 ☆
Story: 3/5 ☆
It was very, very difficult for me to get into this book. It felt slow and even once I had become more invested in it, I still found the pace too slow for my liking.
Overall, the writing is good. J.K. Rowling has a great talent for world building and meaningful writing. I could’ve done without “fuck” like, every other sentence. And I felt there were a lot of unnecessary remarks, like a man checking out a woman. It seemed so forcibly vulgar, like JKR was trying to prove she can write for adults. I get it, but it wasn’t necessary.
The story, however, is where I was really disappointed. It was incredibly formulaic for its genre. It felt predictable and every time something new happened, I was like, okay, this isn’t relevant, can we just find out who did it already? (Although my suspicions were correct).
I will probably continue to read the series, but if it hadn’t been an audiobook, I don’t think I could’ve gotten through it at all.
♡♡♡
“The dead could only speak through the mouths of those left behind, and through the signs they left scattered behind them.”

*read caption for book recs/update*
I’ve been reading so much lately and it’s amazing!! I’ve discovered that reading a several different books of different genres keeps my interest so I actually pick up what I’m feeling at the time instead of not reading. My progress is fairly slow but at least I’m enjoying it!!! Current reads:
📕Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader: Weird Inventions (good for a humorous light read)
📕The Grand Design by Steven Hawking & Leonard Mlodinow (funnily enough I found this book on quantum physics & the multiverse after reading Dark Matter by Blake Crouch!! Definitely interesting & mind-bending)
📕A collection of Al Purdy Poems (pretty weird. Mind bending in a whole new way).
📕Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke (I’ve been working on this series for years but I’m too into it to DNF
📕Deadly Emotions by Don Colbert (good psychology / self-help read!)
📕The Amory Wars: In Keeping Secrets if Silent Earth 3 (3rd comic in series explaining the story behind @Coheed songs)
📘comment ur favs or recent reads! I have way too many books buT I’ll always take recs!

~Review~
*I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review*
This book truly is something. Amber has amazing world building skills! So the book starts off with Theo, god of war, walking with a sledge hammer on his shoulder. I knew it would be a good book from that moment on. The way the gods were written reminded me of Greek mythology with a normal family who don’t marry each other! There are some major family issues you’ll fine out about. After Theo does his thing with the sledge hammer we meet Cassia. Cassia is an orphan who this her brother is dead. Cassia’s brother supposedly started this war and she is pretty much exiled. When she’s drugged by the zealots (man these people are crazy I tell you) her world flips. Cassia has to deal with everything that’s happened and why is Theo here too? This book was amazing and had one of the best romances. I would totally recommend this!

📖👏📚🙏🇨🇦📘 #BYDN #network #networking #networks #bookrecommendations #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #entrepreneurship #community ⬇️⭐️ Posted @withrepost • @anne.flamant Day 25: On networking

When I became an entrepreneur 3 years ago, I spent my first 18 months of operations working from home, and could go 2 weeks without speaking to anyone. Why? Because I was hiding thinking I was bad at networking!

Well, it turned out I was seeking out the wrong kind of events for me, therefore meeting people I had little in common with, which resulted in awkward interactions that led to no opportunities, feeding the belief I was bad at networking... The game changer was when I started sharing an office with likeminded people who provided a supportive and positive environment about a year and a half ago. I started questioning my belief, gained confidence and educated myself on how to network in an authentic fulfilling manner.

Thank you @radicallinds  And @thesmartwmn for showing me the way, since then I’ve added @jkellyhoey’s book Build Your Dream Network to the toolbox, and track my progress with The Success Planner from @karlynpercil.

I also always seek opportunities to connect meaningfully, by attending events like @mrjankeck’s  Campfire Conversations, TEPP or the #archangelsummit. If you know of other events and resources, pass them along!

Until tomorrow!

⁣𝘚𝘦𝘭𝘧-𝘏𝘦𝘭𝘱 is an astounding collection of nine short stories  by Lorrie Moore. Throughout the book, the battle between melancholy and humour is amusing. I especially enjoyed ⁣𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐𝘴 𝘚𝘦𝘪𝘻𝘦𝘥, 𝘎𝘰 𝘓𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴, 𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘵𝘰 𝘛𝘢𝘭𝘬 𝘵𝘰 𝘠𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘔𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 (𝘕𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘴), and 𝘈𝘮𝘢𝘩𝘭 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘕𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘝𝘪𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘴: 𝘈 𝘨𝘶𝘪𝘥𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘛𝘦𝘯𝘰𝘳 𝘰𝘧 𝘓𝘰𝘷𝘦.⠀
⠀
⁣⁣'𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈𝐬 𝐒𝐞𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐝'⠀
Through a series of photographs, the narrator relays the dreams and struggles of her deceased mother who appears to have endured a loveless marriage. ⁣𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐𝘴 𝘚𝘦𝘪𝘻𝘦𝘥 is an intimate, heart-wrenching account of time taking its toll on the body and mind. Some excerpts:⠀
⠀
“Cold men destroy women,’ my mother wrote me years later. “They woo them with something personable that they bring out for show, something annexed to their souls like a fake greenhouse, lead you in, and you think you see life and vitality and sun and greenness, and then when you love them, they lead you out into their real soul, a drafty, cavernous, empty ballroom, inexorably arched and vaulted and mocking you with its echoes - you hear all you have sacrificed, all you have given, landing with a loud clunk. They lock the greenhouse and you are as tiny as a figure in an architect’s drawing, a faceless splotch, a blur of stick limbs abandoned in some voluminous desert of stone.”⠀
⠀
“Music ultimately left him unstirred. Like a god irritated with his own tinkerings. Despite his talent, or perhaps because of it, he heard only  the machinery, the clanking and spitting. He felt nothing. No compassion.” She coughed. “You would think creating something would necessarily be an act of love or compassion.”⠀
⠀
⁣“𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝐢𝐬 𝐬𝐞𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐝.”⠀
⠀
“You reach a point,” she wrote me once, “where you cannot cry anymore, and you look around you at people you know, at people your own age, and they’re not crying either. Something has been taken. And they are emptier. And they are grateful.”⠀
⠀
⠀
Lorrie Moore's idiosyncratic writing is admirable.⠀
