The Sum of Trifles
I'll Show Myself Out
I was not regularly attending church, but I knew a smart, reasonable Episcopal priest, an acquaintance of my mother, When we sat down together, I told her I tended to rely on books to help me through my problems, and she found one I could borrow. But the book wasn't the real takeaway that day. Instead, it was something she said: "You're not going to die when your mother dies."
"As much as I dreaded that emptiness, I craved it, too. I hungered for all the dying to be over. I felt a pressing restlessness to be done."
"If I have one rule now about furnishing a house, it's this: My house must contain books - lots of books. The rest is negotiable."
