His Dark Materials

I got up this morning, fed the cat, made a cup of tea and got back into bed with a couple of pieces of dark chocolate. Of course that's a promising start to any day. But I had a purpose, and that was to finish reading the last part of Philip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy.

I didn't expect it would make me cry as hard and thoroughly as it did. I can't go into details (way too many spoilers), but anyone who has read it will most likely know what I am talking about. The only thing to do now is go for a walk. The sun is shining and I will just let my feet take me where they will... and let my thoughts and feelings eddy and flow and settle like... Dust. :)

This is one story I'll be reading again.
