"She's got a skull like a Seraphim" thechurch

"She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there, leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together."

Skull? What skull? Oh yeah! Hê hê... silly me. I wish I found more of Salingers books. I just have T.C.I.T.R., but his other ones I have never come across. TCITR was even rocking the world at the re-read, which is very rare with me.

Hey Steve!

I just read Catcher one time, and it was long ago.
I love this quote...i keep seeing it on the net the last few days, and I wish I could remember where I snagged the pic. probably at thisisnthappiness or yimmysyayo.
Both great sites!
hi Martijn!

I highly recommend making an effort to find Salinger's other books. They are all wonderful. If you had a kindle you could have them in 60 seconds for cheap. Talk about instant gratification!

Martijn said...

Hey Kim! thanks for the encouragement. Yes, I do make an effort. I look for books four times a week on average (jumble sales, charity shops, et cetera) but Salingers books are not that widely spread here in Holland, and particularly not in English. But I will find them!

A kindle I do not have though: I don't like things that might go broke. I'm terribly old-fashioned... Hey hey!

I looked up this quote, it comes from a story named "A girl I knew".
I read a bit of it, it sucked me right in, very enjoyable the way it was written.
