One of my dear friends has recently sent me a couple of books, am so happy to have something new to read and know that I will enjoy anything recommended by Marnie. The Forrests, by Emilie Perkins arrived in the post today.
Nestled in the opening pages is this quote that I want to share with you,
And there is a physical bliss which cannot be compared to
anything. The body is transformed into a gift. And one feels it
because one is experiencing at source the unmistakable
good fortune of material existence.
Clarice Lispector, ‘State of Grace’
The Forrests is already off to a good start for me!
