beatrice's song

I had a quiet day today, recovering from a busy meeting and travel schedule on Friday and Saturday morning. I finished Edwin O'Connor's "The Edge of Sadness", a masterful novel nearly forgotten now, although it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961. The protagonist, a priest of 50, seemed someone quite easy to relate to and learn from, if one "learns" from fictional characters. I found an irony in the fact that O'Connor himself died at age 49, just shy of his protagonist's age.

In the late afternoon, my wife and I went to the 380 Greenbelt Trail, on Lake Ray Roberts.
