lessons learned

You read a book, a good book, and if you are not completely set in your ways it starts to pull at a thread and your life, just like an old jumper starts to unravel. The book I read was about the Madrid Bombing of the trains. In the bombing the family of the main character gets killed, and it leaves him without home, heart or purpose. But another character emerges with capabilities and a freedom and recklessness that gives him power.
