Hello my friends. I hope this day finds you in peace & joy. Here in the US we have Labor Day on Monday, so no work or school for us. I need the time to try and get caught up on all my homework, reading, watching, writing, and making presentations. I can honestly say that school has changed me in only the first couple of weeks. That is sort of awesome.

I just finished reading a beautiful piece of literature, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. It is the second of ten YA, (Young Adult) novels I will be reading this semester. It is an “American Book Award Winner,” by Benjamin Alire Saenz. Here is how it starts, or an excerpt from the first page.

“I was fifteen.

I was bored.

I was miserable.

As far as I was concerned, the sun could have melted the blue right off the sky.”

The story is tender, turbulent, heartfelt, and poetic. I highly recommend it. Have a hanky handy.
