All Thoughts Fly

My son turned 20 recently. Today we’re attending a shower to celebrate with friends who are having their first child. We are at very different stages of the journey. I’ve always felt a little out of step with my peer groups. For years I’ve been trying to accept that without judgment. It feels awfully lonely at times. But I do enjoy the freedom that comes with having an adult child, and with being single and not having to compromise. I do what I want when I want.

Five items of interest:

A few years ago I started reading Tana French’s gripping Dublin Murder Squad books. Murder mysteries are not my usual genre. I generally go big on speculative fiction, sci-fi, urban fantasy, etc. But she’s a fantastic writer. I have my reservations about this adaptation though. And it seems I’m not the only one:

Dublin Murders Makes a Murky Mess of Tana French’s Lyrical Crime Novels
Combining In the Woods and The Likeness breaks both books’ delicate spell.

Though I’ll likely give in at some point over the coming winter. We’ll see. I’ve already got the new Watchmen and His Dark Materials series to keep up with, along with Stumptown. And I haven’t gone back to Preacher or Legion for their latest seasons. I’ve had too much non-fiction living to do.

Into the woods on a wintry day
