(Read at the suggestion of my students)Not perfect, particularly the dialogues are too expository at times. And the mentions of Jobs and Zuckerberg at the end left me half what. But I’m sure if I had read it as a teenager it would have hit me like a truck.
“I stand in front of the window and that’s all that happens: I look beneficently at the rain, and the rain sees me in agreement with me. We are both busy flowing. How long will my state last? I perceive that, with this question, I am palpating my pulse to feel where is the aching beat from before. And I see that there is no pain beat.just that: it is raining and I am looking at the rain. What simplicity. I never thought that the world and I would reach this point of agreement. “Listened to the audio stories “That’s where I’m going”, “The dead man in the sea of Urca”, “Silence”, “Fading”, “Diving inside”, “Letter to Erico Verissimo” and “So much gentleness”. Previously read: “The departure of the train”.
I’m not with much time to read with this preparing finals thing, but I managed to sneak this one in while standing in line to get a shot.I felt the translation wasn’t optimal. Maybe too literal, I don’t know. I felt the stories became…not obscure, but a bit…gimmicky. Before this I had read “Aller et Retour” by another translator and the prose gave me a totally different feeling. Still, I could be very wrong. I know little or nothing about Barnes and I didn’t see the original in English.The story I liked best was “Paprika Johnson”. It reminded me a bit of the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s (specifically the movie, not the Capote short novel on which it is based). Probably because of the balcony scene where Audrey Hepburn sings “Moon River” with that melanconostalgic tone.

In my office I have a painting I treasure entitled Access to Enlightenment. It is the work of a friend of mine, Danish artist Johan Benthin, who was the first stake president of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The painting shows a dark room with an open door through which light is shining. I find it interesting that the light coming through the door does not illuminate the whole room, but only the space immediately in front of the door.
For me, the darkness and the light in that painting are a metaphor for life. It is part of our condition as mortal beings that we sometimes feel as if we are surrounded by darkness. We may have lost a loved one; a child may have gone astray; we may have received an unsettling medical diagnosis; we may have job difficulties and be overwhelmed by doubts or fears; we may feel lonely or unloved.
However, even though we may feel lost in the circumstances around us, God promises the hope of His light; He promises to illuminate the path ahead and show us the way out of the darkness.

Flora is sweet and shy, genuine, calm and loves all plants of all kinds, likes to experiment with them and enjoys making tea. Flora is strongly attached to nature. If nature “hurts” something, she absorbs the pain. She loves to help people. She can be very sensitive and always wants the best for her friends and everyone around her. Flora is occasionally very overprotective of her little sister Miele, even though she wants to be brave; which Miele leads to several very important events for the Winx Club.
Flora is the most mature member of the Winx Club. She also likes peace, happiness and tranquility. Although she tries to hide her true feelings, her friends help and encourage her to share all her ideas with everyone. Flora gets nervous easily, but when the other Winx are in trouble, she manages to remain calm and reasonable. Sometimes, she doesn’t know how to express herself, because she doesn’t want to start arguments. She is a diligent student at Alfea and is cautious of her actions. Although she can be very insecure, her friends boost her self-esteem. Occasionally she tends to be a bit harsh with enemies when things get worse in front of her.
