Fleecy goodness

IMG_3110“The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don’t. If you keep saying the slippers aren’t yours, then you’ll die searching, you’ll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more.” — Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone

I know that quoting someone’s book does not constitute a blog post, but I read this, finally finishing the book this weekend, and I appreciate slippers and I appreciate slippers as a metaphor.

I am wearing my slippers now.

  1. I started this book, liked it enough to recommend to Jodi, but then couldn’t finish it. OK, I’ll take it on holiday and read it on the boat. More from the Nile.

  2. I really liked the book, (and Ghosh, the slippers were his), though it took a long time to read. Jodi recommended it to me last summer. I have just started King of the Badgers, by Philip Hensher (The Northern Clemency) and am loving it for its precision.
