I have been trying and trying to get this post going but life has been in the way. When I came to the computer
this morning the page up was about concussions, just a little clue in to the circus that has been this month!
Frankly very little pleasure reading has been had here. We are in the home stretch of homeschooling lessons so I am re reading what we covered and what is yet to be covered.
I did find The Overhaul by Kathleen Jamie at our new library. ::sidenote: our new library is bursting with uk imports. like an unusual amount. interesting. ::
What drew me to this collection of poetry is the lino cut on the front. I am a sucker for a beautiful cover. Here is an excerpt of my favorite poem
I watched a hawk
glide low across the hill,
her own dark shape
in her talons like a kill.
Read this hot on the heels of writing about the turkey vultures shadows here on our hill! I love The Gather as well.
For June I would like to start and finish The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin. Reading the series out of order because that is how organized I am these days.
