Oh, my head hurts. Too many pages in too short a time. Too much stuff going on.
Everyone should go read The Dark Tower books by Stephen King. I finished the sixth book, Song of Susannah, today. I need to take a day off before starting the final book for a variety of reasons. My eyes need to catch up, my brain needs to catch up, and I need to go take a very long walk to make up for being a hideous book slug for several days now.
Plus, I'm reluctant for the journey to end. As just about anyone who knows me can tell you, I deal poorly with change. I think some characters I've become attached to are going to die, and I just don't want to go through that doorway. Sigh. Yes, I'm a total goober. Yes, they're only books. But, dammit.
If ya ken this sigul, say thankee-sai, gunslinger!

"I do not aim with my hand.
He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I aim with my Eye.
I do not shoot with my hand.
He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I shoot with my Mind.
I do not kill with my hand.
He who kills with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I kill with my Heart."
- The Gunslinger's Litany by Stephen King
This is really good stuff, guys. Really good stuff.
