"but she did look back and I love her for that because it was so human"

just call me Samantha "pillar of salt" Shorey

(words) Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughter House Five (photo) on film with pentax k1000


  1. Lovely quote, lovely image. I had never really thought of the story that way. I haven't read Slaughter House Five, but it's definitely going on my to-read list. :)

    1. Bethany, I can't believe I was 24 (and a Vonnegut fan) and I had never read it! It's a quick read, and has a lot to say.

  2. I haven't read this book but I really want to. What a beautiful quote from the novel and I love the pic too. Absolutely loving your blog!

  3. Thanks for the perspective this morning, Sam. Have a beautiful weekend.

  4. I never thought of the story that way, either--it's an entirely different perspective!

    and it is so very hard not to look back, no matter how good or bad the present or future may be.

  5. i love the image. and i have to agree with previous commenters - it's so hard not to look back.
