“I loved taking off…” ~ Alice Munro

In my own house, I seemed to be often looking for a place to hide – sometimes from the children but more often from the jobs to be done and the phone ringing and the sociability of the neighborhood. I wanted to hide so that I could get busy at my real work, which was a sort of wooing of distant parts of myself.” 
― Alice Munro, Selected Stories 

Awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature this week.
