I really loved Cold Mountain, the sense of loss of something that you never really had resonates with me.

"Not everything that is still remains in place, and all that moving doesn’t necessarily mean you are going to get somewhere."

so true and so well said, bee!

and yeah...sometimes it is when one stays still, when one quiets oneself and shuts out the noise and steps off the ceaselessly moving tracks of the rat race...sometimes that's when real change happens and one finally "gets somewhere".

p.s.: you might find this interesting: how author charles frazier found the inspiration for "cold mountain"

Indeed KD! This weekend I'm resolving to get back into the habit of discovering books. I miss being able to fold oneself and disappear into a book.

Have a great weekend!

Yeah, it does ramble on and on. I want to see the movie now, I'd like to see how those rolling vistas and the battle scenes were played out.

I saw the film first, so my version of the world of Cold Mt is probably coloured by the big screen.

I enjoyed the book, more for it's descriptive passages rather than for any character development and plot.
