Last night I was ready for bed by ten o'clock. I tried to finish my eBook (Friction by Sandra Brown - review to come in a later post) but my eyes would not stay open so I had to give up halfway into the novel. As I snuggled under the covers, despite the heat, I pushed in my earbuds and clicked on "play". Sissy Spacek's smooth slow drawl filled my ears...
"When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow. When it healed, and Jem’s fears of never being able to play football were assuaged, he was seldom self-conscious about his injury. His left arm was somewhat shorter than his right; when he stood or walked, the back of his hand was at right angles to his body, his thumb parallel to his thigh."
