It’s been rainy for days here in Chicago. Fortunately I’ve had a good book to keep me occupied and which I recommend.
It’s Night Hawks by Charles Johnson (Scribner, 2018). It is a collection of stories. Many of the stories start with an epigraph.
The story “Welcome to Wedgewood” begins with a quote from an Associated Press news item and one from Kahlil Gibran. It is this latter one that has occupied my thoughts so I share it with you.
Peace, love, and solace
I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange I am ungrateful to those teachers.
