Subject: Quote of the Day, December 10, 2015 The following quote is taken from Drums Of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 61, The Office of a Priest. Copyright 1997 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

     
     
     The hair had been plucked from the sides of his skull;
what was left stood up in a thick crest from his scalp,
a long tail hanging down his back.
One ear had been freshly pierced and sported a silver earring.

     His face had been tattooed.

Double crescent lines of small dark spots,
most still scabbed with fresh blood ran across each cheekbone,
to meet at the bridge of the nose.

[> I remember gasping in surprise when I read this for the first time. For some reason I didn't expect the tattoos and it was a shock. I think that's the power of DG's writing, I was as shocked as Jamie and Claire surely were. -- MaryC in KY, 03:22:18 12/10/15 Thu

[> I was so afraid this was a final good bye to Ian. I'm so glad I was wrong because he is my favorite second generation person. And his wife is running a close second! -- Kathy in PA, 05:15:56 12/10/15 Thu

[> The sacrifice that Ian made for Brianna and Roger was overwhelming, but I think it was for Jamie more then anyone. -- LisaW, 11:06:55 12/10/15 Thu
