Whoa....

Okay. Have I said that Orson Scott Card is one of the best writers I've read?

I just finished the last book in the Homecoming series. And I can feel things shifting in my brain the way they've done for only a few books before. New ideas to account for in my reckoning of the universe and in my relationship with my creator. And surprisingly, one of those books that's shifted things in my head before is Speaker for the Dead, so Card's got two books on that short list. :)

So yeah, if you get a chance, check those books out. I've not been that blown away in a while.

One of these days, I need to sit down and write out a tentative statement of belief. But right now...I'll focus on getting tired. I think.
