Quote Of The Day



" 'Does it work? Are they happier dead?'
'Sometimes. Mostly, no. It's like people who believe they'll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn't work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. If you see what I mean.'
'Sort of,' said Bod. "


From "The Graveyard Book", by Neil Gaiman

OK, you're getting really deep on me now! ;-)
Hey, this isn't a commentary on your move is it?

Hi Nan, I have just caught up with all your blogging since being in England.. Lovely that you and the boys are settled in to a nice flat with an actual KITCHEN! It all sounds great. Have fun while Sean is there.

Love Eileen

hmmm...very morbid post. Makes me think of sad things and people I don't want to think of. Hope all is well

Don't Panic! All is well. We have brought ourselves with us, but it's a good thing! The boys just read "The Graveyard Book" and really enjoyed it, so I read it too and that quote made me think. There are so many immigrants here. We have ALL brought ourselves with us, for better or worse.
