Hello everyone! So my goal is to read 2 books a month with a total of 24 books for the year. Well last month once again I only read one. The book I read was Ernest Hemingway’s book called “A Farewell to Arms”. This book is a classic and I do admire the writing skills. He paints a very vivid picture of the scenery that is around his characters and the feelings that they have. This book was alright to me. A book that I do like by him would be “The Sun Also Rises.
Now I did find a passage in the book that somehow resonated with me.
It said “I know that the night is not the same as the day: that all things are different, that the things of the night cannot be explained in the day, because they do not then exist and, the night can be a dreadful time for lonely people once their loneliness has started. But with Catherine there was almost no difference in the night except that it was even better time.”
These words related to me because the night is a mysterious and lonely place at times. When you are truly alone inside and out the night seems frightening, but when you are content with yourself and love yourself the night doesn’t seem so bad. But when you are content and love yourself and someone else loves you and they are also content with themselves and loves themselves. The night just seems like the day but much better. I truly have experienced this feeling or moment with my family and my girlfriend Sara.
