Just got done reading a famous Charles Dickens classic “A tale of two cities”. Just loved every bit of it! It’s so funny that I never was given to reading when I was young and now I feel like a print junkie! Dr. Manette, being rent from his unborn child and imprisoned in the Bastille without a trial, his daughter growing up without the knowledge of his existence, was finally know to have been ‘recalled to life’ from that unfortunate situation. The loving solicitude of his daughter really restores Dr. Manette from this insensate state to life. The reason of his incarceration not known until much later in the novel was this evil Marquis Evremonde. Dr. Manette was in such a unique situation – to be the victim of the Evremonde family and yet prizing his daughter’s happiness wants to help his son-in-law, a member of that very same infamous family. It’s amazing what the impact of time, experience and relationships on life can do!!! He also reveals such strength in pursuing to help save Charles Darney ( his son-in-law), revealing himself to be a man of distinction! … “ Silent, humane, indispensable in hospital and prison, using his art equally among assassins and victims, he was a man apart.”
Now I deviate, I feel “recalled to life” where blogging is concerned, not from anything dreadful but just from trotting all over the place these two months. We’ve been to Goa, Bombay, back to Delhi for my sister’s wedding, and then places in Andhra – Guntur, Markapur and Vijaywada. I am finally back and ready to roll. I hope to post some more.. may be this week sometime.
