I have no time to say more, but as it has taken  me almost a year, I thought I’d mark the day I finished A time for everything with a post. It’s a fantastic book, in both senses of the word.

I feel I have resurfaced after a long journey – not that it was an  infernal experience, not at all, but the last words of Dante’s Inferno come to mind: “E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle.” (“And then we got out to see the stars again.”). I’ll try to find the time to explain why, soon enough. I wonder what Dante would think of it – or Milton.
