"Sometimes the best we can do is live for each other, she says. It’s enough. Even if it seems like it isn’t"
- Bryan Washington
I find there are a few things that can happen with a work of literature. One is where you put the book down and think to yourself, "hmmm."
Another is when you immediately text your friend "trust me on this one."
A third is where you must find some way to wipe the tears from your face and stop your sobbing. And step away, knowing the meaning and deep effect from that work will hit you later, and only then will you be able to decide what to do with that meaning.
Family Meal fits into that last category.
