Thanks for being so respectful, my heart goes out to you and your journey. I couldn't have asked for a more delicate renter than Andrew Furze. I felt like these few pages from books I like might inspire you like they inspired me. Then it's one more thing we have in common ! :-)
The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann Wyss "Guy" pg. 210
"At last, we reached our destination, which was as picturesque as Fritz had described it. As we sailed into the Bay of Pearls-for this is what we named it-we gasped, for the sight we saw took our breath away-we saw huge oyster beds nestled on the ocean floor."
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski pg. 183
"When they finally make camp, both men are disheartened and exhausted. Nevertheless, each agrees to alternately serve as watch. Navidson takes the first shift, spending his time removing the dark blotched gauze around his toes-clearly a painful process-before reapplying ointment and a fresh dressing. Reston spends his time tinkering with his chair and the mount on the Arriflex."
MacArthur Study Bible, John 5:5-9 pg. 1587
5. Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years.
6. When ("") saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be made well?"
7. The sick man answered Him, "Sire, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me."
8. ("") said to him, "Rise, take up your bed and walk."
9. And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked.
Hope to rent to you again soon. Let me know what's good in the neighborhood, Furze!
