The greatest escape. This, this is going to be my next big goal. To become a disciplined reader again. I enjoyed reading so much when I was younger. Then, for many years, I was unable to do so (long story). Now I've reached a point in my life where I can indulge myself again. And with reading lists from friends like Maggie and my daughter Marissa, I'm going to do it. Just you wait and see.

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t...... Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. ....And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out. ― Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper Moral: Be in the present! NOW! DG
Mitch Albom - The Time Keeper: "Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out."

S. C. Gwynne’s Empire of the Summer Moon spans two astonishing stories. The first traces the rise and fall of the Comanches, the most powerful Indian tribe in American history. The second entails one of the most remarkable narratives ever to come out of the Old West: the epic saga of the pioneer woman Cynthia Ann Parker and her mixed-blood son Quanah, who became the last and greatest chief of the Comanches. This is an excellent read! Highly recommended.
