Lest we forget. Who could ever forget these men. In God's hands. We must live for them now.

I could feel the mist on my skin and the cold fear in my heart.

George looked after Lenny to the very end. He never left him. Lenny was too good for this world. Their slice of land was Heaven. Most authentic dialogue ever read. Like a time machine to the California depression.

Poor little Miles. Such a brave lad and companion. He was taken. We become what we fear most as Oscar Wilde said.

This caring man. So many he has lost and so many Morrissey has touched through his kind sincerity. I love Manchester and I love Moz. It was a privilege to be invited in.

Salt of the Earth people. A wonderful father and mother, great mates and that beautiful mare who Joe and Allan watered. The harsh realities but also incredible joy of the aussie countryside and the larrikans who lived there. The fair go Alan receieved by his contemporaries and the respect and honour he showed to all those around him made him one terrific bloke. This story brought tears to my eyes and my heart swelled. Pain made him stronger as he faced it.

Beautiful caring moments between Albert and Mike as they try to find those girls. Leda and the swan imagery throughout this novel paints a picture of a monolithic force (like chronos time) ready to destroy innocence (the swan),.

A joy. Whilst sin may lead to madness we can invest in goodness if we so choose to. Just as relevant for us all today. Tolstoy makes the universal personal. My heart is with Ana's children.

Had this read to me as a boy and cried. Read it as a grown man and cried. Waving goodbye to Charlotte with one leg. I am so glad Templeton didn't follow his nature and eat the egg sack.
