Imported from Word Press:
J.D. Salinger is dead at 91. (The NY Times obit) He and his books were such a part of my young adult reading. I came to love Holden Caulfield and the whole Glass family.
I became a silent prayer person thanks to Franny Glass, who recited the Jesus prayer over and over: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner." That exhortation has comforted me during many stressful moments in my life.
