1.5 hours left on my blogging machine robot thing. Which is fine for today because my brain has little attention span at the moment. It was a long long day.
When I was at work, a man come in who was reading When Things Fall Apart. I immediately felt some sort of compassion or empathy or something. I read that book when my life was falling apart. When I knew my 4 year relationship with my fiance was ending. I wanted to hug this guy. He looked sad even. All I could say was “That book is such a good one. I finished it not too long ago.” He seemed a bit embarrassed and said something about it being better than the alternative.
It’s a good book and honestly such a comfort if life is just so shitty at the moment.
I am not doing a book review or anything, I just wanted to share in case there is anyone out there who stumbles upon this and needs a few comforting thoughts and words.
