As Erika said, "This book gives me too many feelings."

Really beautiful, if quiet. It's like Marilynn Robinson without the technical flair.

Noted on March 4, 2013

I find plenty to do. I keep house and cook. In fit weather I go for walks. For company I go to church or drive over to Lyda and Danny's, or I go and visit an hour or two at Andy and Flora Catlett's to see what is in their minds. Sometimes they drive over here and sit still bedtime. Sometimes, an old haunted woman, I wander about in this house that Nathan and I renewed, that is now aged and worn by our life in it. How many steps, wearing the thresholds? I look at it all again. Sometimes it fills to the brim with sorrow, which signifies the joy that has been here, and the love. It is entirely a gift.
