The Best Quote from Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and a picture of the latest goodness!

on February 1, 2012

Handmade just for ME by Nessa's Naturals.

I finally got my umpteenth copy of Of Love and Other Demons today.  The entire book is just excellent, but for me, the best quote ever is this:

“The Bishop called him to account in his office and listened without indulgence to his complete unadorned confession, conscious that he was presiding not over a sacrament but a judicial hearing.  The only leniency he showed him was to keep the true nature of his sin a secret, yet with no public explanation he stripped him of his dignities and privileges and sent him to the Amor de Dios Hospital to nurse the lepers.  Delaura begged for the consolation of saying five-o’clock Mass for them, and the Bishop granted his request.  He kneeled with a sense of profound relief, and together they said an Our Father.  The Bishop blessed him and helped him to his feet.

“May God have mercy on you,” he said.  And erased him from his heart.

Its the last line that shreds me each and every time.  And erased him from his heart.  *sobs*

If anyone is curious, its the very first paragraph of Chapter 5.

All right, readers.  I had to get that last bit out.  Thank you for understanding.

We will be back to our regularly scheduled programming soon.  I have to talk about the new Magic Vegan Eye Shadow Primer from The All Natural Face, as well as some amazing goodies from Nessa’s Naturals.  Owens Acres has a FB page, and Laura has been creating more and more fun things.  So much to talk about!

Also want to give a shout out to a new friend, Susan over at Going Green Fabulously.

    Very excited to hear about the eyeshadow primer. I am currently using the one from Silk Naturals, which works pretty well, but it is more difficult to blend shadows with.
