Children were the foot wedged in the closing door, the glimmer of hope that in reincarnation there would be some house to go to, even if one came back as a dog, or a mouse, or a flea that lived on the bodies of men.  If..there was a raising of the dead, then a child would be sure to see that its parents were awakened.

Abraham Verghese, "Cutting for Stone"

At the top of my favorites of all time list.  I loved this book.

spike + joaquin

Dear Catherine,

I've been sitting here thinking about all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I'm sorry for that. I'll always love you 'cause we grew up together and you helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and I'm grateful for that.  Whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, I'm sending you love. You're my friend to the end.

Love, Theodore.

I loved this movie.
