Finishing up “Stiff”


It’s very witty.  Some of it is macabre; I had to put it down for a couple of days.  However, Mary Roach is quite clever, and I’ve laughed out loud numerous times, always indicative of a good book!  I also found a copy of A Book of Angels by Sophy Burnham.  I read this book in 1991, and it was very inspirational.  I’m finding it just as inspirational now.  It is full of wise quotes.  I’ll close with one.

from Saint Augustine:

“Miracles do not happen in contradiction to nature, but only in contradiction to that which is known to us of nature.”

I like!
