From walk through West End
Check out this entry in Bored Panda. What is currently entry number 6 - submitted by Anonymous Panda - It's me! It was a beautiful day of wandering around the West End in Brisbane and being pregnant with Zupe. You won't see the pregnant, only the "mouse hole" and mice.

"The Beginner's Goodbye" by Anne Tyler

My friend Luke told me once that he'd been considering my question about whether the dead ever visit. It was true that I had asked him back around the time I had asked Nate, but this was weeks and weeks later. Apparently, he had been deliberating the issue ever since. "I've decided," he said, "that they don't visit. But, I think if you knew them well enough, if you'd listened to them closely enough while they were still alive, you might be able to imagine what they would tell you even now. So, the smart thing to do is pay attention while they're living. But, that's only my opinion."

INGRID MICHAELSON - "The Way I Am" - (official music video)

Kevin is a wonder at getting things that one of us thinks we need or might enjoy. He recently found he had a discography of Ingrid Michaelson though neither of us knew WHO she might be - OK. Yeah, we knew she'd be a musician. This was NOT the song that he eventually figured out that had spurred his interest. Nor was it the song that was featured in the HBO program we both loved, "Enlightened". The special song was one about breathing. I should find it for you…. or maybe Kevin will.

From Kevin:

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

Being dead is not worse than being alive, it is different though. You could say the view is larger.
