“You climb up through the little grades and then get to the top and everybody cheers; with the sweat in your eyebrows you can’t see very well and the noise swirls around you and lifts you up, and then you’re out, not forgotten at first, just out, and it feels good and cool and free. You’re out, and soft of melt, and keep lifting, until you become like to these kids just one more piece of the sky of adults that hangs over them in the town, a piece that for some queer reason has clouded and visited them.

John Updike [1932-2009] Rabbit Run [1960]

John Hoyer Updike was an American novelist, poet, short story writer, art critic, and literary critic.

U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen, Jr (drums and percussion).

I am taking part in the April A to Z Blog Challenge. Every day in the month of April, I will post a blog entry related to a letter of the alphabet. I gave it some thought and wanted to keep it in line with what I write about here on Waldina.com and came up with famous quotes, people that inspire and music that resonates with me.
