Many of you may have read this book. The book was assigned reading in high school. It was an epic story written by Frank Herbert. Its a futuristic book based on Melange or “Spice”. Within the story is a theme of overcoming and facing ones fears. I refer sometimes to a poem that was recurrent through the story which dealt with facing fear. I quoted some of the poem in a post yesterday and was delighted to get a response from someone else who read the book.
The surgery on my toe went well yesterday. Today I am home with my leg up and almost numb from the pain. I do however wish I had a good book like Dune to read now. The last few years the majority of books now I read out loud to my kids, but when I travel, I do like to read. I read Dune decades ago and it’s been a few years since an author has really caught my attention. The last one was Dan Brown.
Today, I have the time to read the manual to my new ipad but being on pain medication cant really focus well. Good thing this computer has spell check….. SO, I decided to let Pandora create a radio station for me based on songs like Southern Cross.
Might as well suffer along to some good music…… Tomorrow is another day.
