Friday Favorites | Initial Offering from Whistling Past the Graveyard

Today begins a new series on Found Between the Covers called Friday Favorites.  Friday Favorites is my opporrtunity to share with you a quote from recent reads or a quote I’ve saved for years from a past read or a tidbit about something bookish. I hope you’ll join in and let me know what are your favorites.

My daddy says that when you do somethin’ to distract you from your worstest fears,
it’s like whistlin’ past the graveyard. You know, making a racket to keep the scaredness
and the ghosts away. He says that’s how we get by sometimes. But it’s not weak,
like hidin’…it’s strong. It means you’re able to go on.”

    Great idea! I guess we can compare quotes in your “Friday Favorites” and my “Purple Passages,” Sherrey. Good choice for Friday, the 13th, for sure.
