blindness--jose saramago

I spent a year reading this book blindness. It is a very difficult book and I'm pretty sure that I now own two copies because I lost the first copy for a while. I was struck by the sentences and couldn't stop reading it even though it was maddening at times. It took the full year. It was a book worth reading, but I could have waited for the movie.

 I took a couple of early morning walks around mom's 13.6 by the creek and found several arrowheads. that was nice. I grew up loving this land that was originally a part of my grandmother's farm.

oak tree twu

 I went to Texas to see my folks last weekend. Mom now has cancer. She can't catch a break. I went to check out the TWU campus. It doesn't have as many trees as West University in Houston, but isn't this swell? TWU is a women's university over 100 years old with large graduate nursing program and three campus'.
