“The further I got from home, the more interesting and unusual my thoughts became. I discovered that I could think things in a new landscape that never would have occurred to me at home” ~ Richard Russo in Bridge of Sighs
The characters In some of Richard Russo’s books will forever live with me. Empire Falls is haunting, and Nobody’s Fool is awesome too…Sully is a characther that unfortunately will always be a part of my circle of friends LOL!
His characters are so real and vivid.
I do find that visiting new places helps me see things in a different way. Another interesting thing is bringing in new people to FAMILIAR places. I think we’ve all experienced seeing things through others eyes.
Beautiful book, beautiful quote.
