illusionIs this the real me?  Is that the real you?  Who knows?  Maybe these four quotes from literature about reality will help us sort it out.

Affery, like greater people, had always been right in her facts, and always wrong in the theories she deduced from them. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens

Words, as is well known, are the great foes of reality. ~ Under Western Eyes by Joseph Conrad

Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem. ~ The Moon and Sixpence by W. Somerset Maugham

All other swindlers upon earth are nothing to the self-swindlers, and with such pretences did I cheat myself. Surely a curious thing. That I should innocently take a bad half-crown of somebody else’s manufacture, is reasonable enough; but that I should knowingly reckon the spurious coin of my own make, as good money!  ~ Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

List of Seven
Looking for a good book to read over the weekend?  Check out List of Seven by Mark Frost.  Frost, a co-creator of the Twin Peaks television series, brings us an entertaining mystery featuring a young Arthur Conan Doyle.   The novel opens in London of 1884 when things go horribly wrong at a seance.  To solve the mystery, Conan Doyle joins forces with special agent Jack Sparks.  Together they pursue a deadly group of Victorian Satanists known as the Dark Brotherhood.

Here’s what one reader had to say . . .

There are books that are OK, books you like, books you love, and then there a another whole class of very special uber-books that you flat-out enjoy, devour every page, and feel devastated when they are finished.
