We're reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society for November. I'm loving this book. I've already written down several quotes I want to remember. Here's one: Have you ever noticed that when your mind is awakened or drawn to someone new, that person's name suddenly pops up everywhere you go? My friend Sophie calls it coincidence, and Mr. Simpless, my parson friend, calls it Grace. He thinks that if one cares deeply about someone or something new, one throws a kind of energy out into the world, and "fruitfulness" is drawn in.
I've had that happen to me many times. I've stopped thinking of it as coincidence. I don't believe in coincidence anyway, good Calvinist that I am. I think it's more of an awareness.
I'll post more later from this wonderful book. I wasn't sure where this island was located. I knew it belonged to England and was somewhere around the British Isles. Well, it's in the English Channel between England and France. I'd like to visit Guernsey some day. I have seen the cows from there. That has to count for something!
