Sons and Lovers

My new book in my adventure in fiction is Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence. It is number eleven in the top 100 English novels. I picked it, once again, by going down the list at the used book store and this was the first one they had.

I've briefly read about Lawrence. He was quite controversial in his day (early 1900s) for dealing with topics that were considered unmentionable. He was called everything from a pornographer to the most imaginative writer of the 1900s. I'm looking forward to finding out for myself.

I had an interested conversation with my pastor this morning. He dropped by the coffee shop where I was meeting my son. I raised the issue again of the youth leaving churches (including our church) by the droves. He believes that the arts may be a tool for reaching them. I think we might be on the same page regarding the medium, however, I'm not sure if we would be in agreement about the details of that thought.

I will be back. I have out of town guest this week (my son, his wife and my new grandson) and I want to keep my time focused on them.
