Sunday Scribblings #11 - Mystery
This week´s Sunday Scribblings prompt inspired me to make a collage. I have 2 new books on my bedside table : Das Leben ist ein Langer Fluss (Life is a Long River) by Patricia Tudor-Sandahl and The Discovery of Heaven by Harry Mulisch. The first was given to me by a friend after we´d been discussing getting older, the catholic church and religion questions and the second book was recommended by another friend who says that she believes Mulisch´s theory that everything is pre-destined. Always curious, I want to read both books. I wonder, is it important to know what drives us? Are we the masters of our own destiny? Is it all fate or just one big coincidence? It is a mystery to me. I´m not sure if I want to know the answers...would we live differently if we knew?
