Inspired to read 'High Tide in Tucson' by Barbara Kingsolver after reading the following:
"Every one of us is called upon, probably many times, to start a new life. A frightening diagnosis, a marriage, a move, loss of a job... And onward full tilt we go, pitched and wrecked and absurdly resolute, driven in spite of everything to make good on a new shore. To be hopeful, to embrace one possibility after another-that is surely the basic instinct...Crying out: High Tide! Time to move out into the glorious debris. Time to take this life for what it is."
