Hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes with this premature posting but I've got to get to bed and I wanted to share this bit from COLD MOUNTAIN by Charles Fraizer with you all.

- Then tell me of your long journey home, Ada said. Inman thought about it, but then he let himself imagine he had at last come out on the far side of trouble and had no wish to revisit it, so he told only how along the way he watched the nights of the moon and counted them out to twenty-eight and then started over, how he watched Orion climb higher up the slope of sky night by night, and how he had tried to walk with no hope and no fear but had failed miserably, for he had done both. But how on the best days of walking he achieved some sucess in matching his thoughts to the weather, dark or bright, so as to attune with what freak of God's mind sent cloud or shine.

Sorry, didn't see your thread before I posted mine. We are into Orion season.... I thought the first half of Cold Mountain was one of the best books I had ever read. I thought the last half was terribly disappointing -- an bad example of wish fulfillment. He should have been killed earlier or not at all. Beautifully written, though. yours, Peter T.

No sweat Peter. I sometimes entertain several thoughts a day.

Regards, Frankie
