olde_fashioned: (Bright Star -- open window)
...to all of you who commented on my last entry, and have been praying for my family! So far, the darkness hasn't encroached upon us just yet--it's very possible that this disaster is just waiting until later to spring, or, that the many prayers of our friends have prevailed. This is my hope, however it's not over until we're out of the minefield, so to speak.

So, again, thank you to those kind souls and good friends who've taken the time to get on their knees for us, and please keep them coming! They're working! ♥

I finished The Great Gatsby last night, having started it on Monday and staying up a little late to get to the last page. Having seen the Robert Redford miniseries a few years ago, I already knew the story. Evidently this was a good adaptation, because there was scarcely a plot element from the book that the movie didn't cover; therefore I wasn't "surprised" by anything "new" in the book.

As I'm wont to do, I prefer to record something of my own initial impressions before I read anything "critical" or "professional" on the subject which might influence me. Therefore, if you haven't read the book and wish to avoid spoilers, please stop reading now! Otherwise, proceed. ;)
