Dust in the air….

Sounds of the machines can still be heard if you listen closely in the silence of the tomb-like workshop. Not far in the past, a bustling area used to cut wood for a local lumber yard. Men counting inches and measuring pine, oak and maple to be used in construction of houses and local projects. Then came that day; a worker went outside for a smoke, only to return and find the entire shop abandoned. Everyone was gone and the machines were quiet. They had simply vanished and no one ever saw them again. Dust was in the air…….

      • I am open to this novel but I’m not sure why he argues the past is important in understanding ourselves and others. To me living now is important, I mean I don’t want to know if I was a sinner or a saint I the past, trying to live now is a big enough issue. I do though enjoy the philosophical discussions he has around forgiveness and the importance of love. Our place in the universe and our place in the lives of others and how they interact with each other. It is teaching we a lot as I go along. Though they do drink an wakeful lot of vodka as they along in this story. Sorry I do tend to ramble on at times.

      • Hm…I would say the past is only important in that we need history in order to NOT repeat same mistakes. I agree that living now is important. I don’t think I want to know what I did or didn’t do in the past (if that’s possible) But I know some days my Karma is so sucky that I wonder if I wasn’t Pilot in my past life?? You know!?? LOL~
