"silly calendar numbers can't interfere
with the destiny of the heart" Page 129

In Canto Four, we see Linda learn more in her progression of religious exploration, as she makes friends with Judith (a Jew) and tries to convert. Not as much sadness in this Canto, although it is a bit heavy on the Heart to see Linda's Love for Bob not to be returned. There is much Linda learns about Judaism that she shares with us (and that she remained adoring of even in her later years). In Canto Four, we even learn of Jesus' earlier incarnation as Abraham! Wow! And the vivid imagery of Aunt Sallie's house and its trappings she creates for us gives Linda a chance to show how expert she is at writing and conveying real sights, sounds, scents, and textures within her readers' imaginations. A born romantic, Linda Loves so deeply and dreams so extravagantly, even with puppy Love, yet she hides her feelings so well. So sentimental and so feeling, little did Linda realize how truly beautiful she was, even with her straight mousey hair and freckled skin. Her quiet insecurities and deep feelings of unworthiness ring home ever so true for each of us as we think about those times in our own Lives. Thanks, Linda, for bearing your Soul to all of us. Somehow, we all feel closer to you for that. While parts of this Canto made me laugh out loud (like her suspicions over that sneaky Holy Spirit ), there is a sadness in that her Nana had no idea of her true feelings for Bob.

"what are these ? oh, I see, ticket stubs
from the golf course the other night
just drop them in the wastebasket over there" Page 133

*sob*

In Canto Five, Linda delves into the mysteries of the Christian Scientists. I can hardly wait!

Poor Linda!!

Hi, finished Canto Four last night. I really don't have much to add, as Randall covered it so nicely...except to say that I agree. And yes, Linda has such an amazing ability to describe places, houses, people, etc., that it takes very little effort for the reader to feel it all!

I finished Canto Four a few minutes ago and no offense to anybody, but i didnt really like it. it wasnt as interesting to me as the other ones... somehow when linda starts talking about religion and such i just tune out and get bored. does anyone else feel the same way?

You should try to pay attention. Linda doesn't waste words. It's all important to how the future story unfolds. Also, take notice of the recurring theme of the single rose as it appears throughout.

But I agree with you. Normally, religious talk tunes me out, too.

I liked how she wrote the letter to Judith,

Dear Judy - I mean Judith, (LOL)

'Scout's Honor' LOL, I saw her devotion here.

'I hope you'll invite me when your mother and dad give you your circumcision party'

LOL, I thought Judy was a girl, yes I know they have batmizvah's, just a tongue in cheek ....did you catch that?

I didn't mind at all the 'religious' stuff, you see how they 'transform' and the ceremonies she does, even her own enactment of being a bride to Jesus with that veil and ring she made herself, found it very symbolic as she learned truths from different paths and applied them in her unique way.

led straight through the Looking Glass
to Wonderland and the Mad Hatter..

Did you know those Top Hats
were made of Mercury, and it
made them go MAD!?

I wish Linda were around to comment on some of the stuff we wonder about. She missed the whole inetrnet revolution. *sigh*

I know, I wish she was here also. She was born too early or we were born too late.
