I'm doing my best not to ruin the whole storyline here, as I highly recommend reading Modoc. This amazing creature wrapped her trunk around my heart and I shed a few tears as I followed the path she and Bram took together over their lifetimes. I also really appreciated the spiritual aspects.
Sometimes it is better to accept help than to suffer the consequences without it. Only men suffer the pride and ego that they themselves have created. The Creator never gave animals these burdens. They are of little use, but it is my guess that He had to test us to see if we could overcome.
All life is built upon steppingstones that reach into the Beyond. Without them, we could never reach our goals. Use them, you have earned them, and they are yours.
It is 3:45 a.m. and I haven't slept much this weekend. I finished the book, and turned off the light, but my thoughts went round and round. I figured a blog was in order. I don't usually suffer from insomnia, but I guess as long as there are great books around, I'll always have something to turn to. Pick up Modoc. You won't regret it. Thanks, A, for insisting I read this amazing book.
