It is hard to think of September highlights.
This sounds weird to say that. If COVID didn’t hit, my church would be at Kanuga for a Parish Retreat. One of the traditions at Kanuga was hiking- my family decided to actually walk on a Charlotte Greenway with some church members. So, we did something connected to Kanuga.
I finally finished Bleak House this month. I loved that book- I have loved all the Dickens books I read so far. After Bleak House, I decided to read a fantasy- The Golden Compass. The Golden Compass was recommended to me by Park Road Books- for the most part they don’t fail in that.
I have been finding The Golden Compass to be interesting- Lyra actually reminds me of Lila Lila is a co-protagonist of Shades of Magic while Lyra is the main character of the The Golden Compass. I think there might be a chance I will be finishing the series of The Golden Compass.
Thinking of books, I purchased two more books this year. I bought Little Women and Mayor Casterbridge. My dad recommended Mayor of Casterbridge- it was because of my love for Dickens. I was told that Dickens is similar to Hardy- by looking at the summary blurb, I realized the main character in a way is similar to Valjean.
This is one of the highlights of North Carolina. There is a lot to do there- from rafting to rock climbing to hiking. I loved that we were hiking trails- it also connected to Kanuga. I am a mountain person, who loves to hike.
Little Women- ever since the film came out in 2019, I wanted to see it. Finally, I did. I really enjoyed this movie. Little Women was a story I loved in childhood, but never remembered why. It has nothing to do with the fact that one of the characters shares my name.
Onward- I wanted to see this Disney animated film ever since it opened. Full of magic, creatures, challenges, adventure, and humor. It is difficult to describe why I loved this film in the first place.
I know there were not big highlights this month, but still amazing things came out of it. October is a hard month to think about- the biggest highlight was going to be Frozen, but that got postponed.
