I haven’t done a Wednesday Words of Wisdom in a while but I thought this quote would help me come back with a bang. This week’s writer is Shonda Rhimes: screenwriter, producer and director.

“Ru. In Vietnamese it means lullaby; in French it is a small stream, but also signifies a flow–of tears, blood, money.” –Ru, Kim Thúy.
This is the opening line to Kim Thúy’s book summary. It’s a story of two worlds: Vietnam and Quebec. And two lives.

This was supposed to be a Saturday Summary but my March got very, very busy all of a sudden. I’ve been doing volunteer work, completing an online course and looking for jobs. Even though it takes me forever to finish a book, my love for reading has been rekindled. It’s nice to be able to still fit in an enjoyable read though, like The Fault in Our Stars, despite a busy schedule.
