"On windowsills,

Laila spots flowers potted in the empty shells of old Mujahideen rockets - rocket flowers, Kabulis call them. "
This line from Klaled Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns made me smile... hope finds its way through so much, doesn't it?
Man, 18 hours, 367 pages, my 9th summer read and I'm blown away.
Last night, I started reading Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri.
Last week of summer vacation before school's back in session. First grade.
I flew back from Utah last Saturday. Highlights are
  • I did not win
  • I loved Tim Holtz's classes :)
  • I made new friends

And today, I definitely plan on taking photos... my camera has been idle lately!

You had my Vote! I do have to say I am really bummed about the outcome, and I'm sorry I honestly don't think it's right.
Isn't the K.H. book powerful. I loved both of his books.
