COOL QUOTE // Girl With a Pearl Earring

“I looked at the painting one last time, but by studying it so hard I felt something slip away. It was like looking at a star in the night sky – if I looked at one directly I could barely see it, but if I looked from the corner of my eye it became much brighter.”

– Griet

I’m on a family getaway near Bend, Oregon at the moment and despite coming fully prepared with my chosen reads, I couldn’t resist a perusal through the rental house’s well-stocked bookshelves.

I plucked out Tracy Chevalier’s Girl with a Pearl Earring and haven’t been able to put it down!  The quote above is a great example of its beautiful prose.  Hopefully I make it all the way through, else management may find themselves short a book :-).
