"Sometimes I have loved the peacefulness of an ordinary Sunday. It is like standing in a newly planted garden after a warm rain. You can feel the silent and invisible life." Marilynne Robinson (Gilead)
Marilynne Robinson’s first novel, “Housekeeping
” was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize
in Fiction in 1980. Her second book, “Gilead
” was written 24-years after her first book. Robinson received the 2005 Pulitzer for Fiction as well as several other prestigious awards for her tale of the Civil War through the eyes of three generations. Her third book, “Home
” takes place at the same time as “Gilead” but it’s an entirely separate story.
I love this quote. There’s nothing better than a day spent in the garden wit the summer heat washed away for a moment with a cool shower. I love the scent of the earth after a rain and then I love watching the sun remove any evidence of it.
Enjoy your Sunday and may it be lazy and happy.
