I’m Still Alive

Wow…this has been a heck of trip. I have been sleeping like a bear in hibernation, and was getting rather frustrated by the whole thing until hubby reminded me of all I have been through. I guess after my surgery, ER trip and the subsequent flu my body was just “done”. I am feeling well so far this morning, and am hoping to actually be awake a good part of today. Wow.

I pray that everyone in the path of this latest winter storm is staying safe and warm. We have gotten a bit of wind and rain here, and the temps are down a bit, though nothing like what most are dealing with. I look forward to warmer days later this coming week.

On a totally different topic. About two weeks ago I saw a documentary about J.D. Salinger on PBS and was really intrigued by this reclusive writer. I never read The Catcher in the Rye while in school but felt it was “necessary” reading, so I picked it up at the book store this week. Well, so far…I’m not impressed. What is the big deal with this book? It was around page 5 and I was already thinking if Holden Caulfield said “…and all” one more time I would shoot myself. I am hoping to get into the story at some point, but I am beginning to see why Salinger went into hiding. Hmm…I think I’ll finish Your Sacred Self by Wayne W. Dyer first.

I am so grateful to be on the upswing finally. Being upright and awake will be a nice change of pace. Hugs, Peace and Love all!

  1. I am so happy to see that you are on the mend 😀 The Catcher in the Rye was required reading at my high school and I remember liking it and relating it. I can’t for the life of me remember much about it, but I do remember having several discussions about it during English class.

    • I try to read the “classics” but yeah, Salinger is a big disappointment. It is mostly the language and style I am not liking…Yes, Dr. Dyer is a much better read. 🙂

  2. I think it was when that book came out that it made it “groundbreaking,” maybe the language and the dysfunction – I don’t know. It still sells 250,00 copies a year! Like you, though, I wasn’t really impressed. Peace . . .
