The Elegance of the Hedgehog

I have just finished reading “The Elegance of the Hedgehog” by Muriel Barbery. My favorite lines in the book:

“They didn’t recognize me,” I say. I come to a halt in the middle of the sidewalk, completely flabbergasted.

“They didn’t recognize me,” I repeat.

He stops in turn, my hand still on his arm.

“It’s because they have never seen you,” he says. “I would recognize you anywhere.”

About Terri C Pilarski

I am an Episcopal priest serving a delightfully progressive, interesting, creative congregation. I have been married more than half my life to the same man. We have two grown children, plus two dogs and two cats, although the number of four legged household members changes from time to time. I love to garden, knit, read, and play on Facebook or with my blog. I have been a practitioner of daily meditation since I was nineteen. I practice yoga five days a week and walk every where I am able too.
