Current reading

Just a couple quotes from Godric, by Frederick Buechner:

It's less the words they say than those they leave unsaid that split old friends apart. (p. 89)

When friends speak overmuch of times gone by, often it's because they sense their present time is turning them from friends to strangers. Long before the moment came to say goodbye, I think, we said goodbye in other words and ways and silences. Then when the moment came for it at last, we didn't say it as it should be said by friends.
(p. 90)
