Subject: QOTD for Friday, March 3, 2017

The following quote is taken from An Echo In The Bone by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 89 Ink Stained Wretch. Copyright © 2009 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

“My dearest Claire,

Ian is dead. It has been ten days since the Event, and I thought I should now be able to write calmly. Yet to see those Words written on the Page just now smote me with the most unexpected Grief. Tears are running down the sides of my Nose, and I was forced to stop to mop my Face with a Handkerchief before continuing. It was not an easy Death and I should be relieved that Ian is now at Peace, and glad for his Translation into Heaven. So I am. But I am also desolate, in a Way that I have never been before. Only the Thought of being able to confide in you, my Soul, gives me Comfort.”
