When The Sun arrives, I read it cover to cover as soon as I can. This morning, over coffee, I read “A Drop of Blood,” by Giorgios Mangakis, on the July 2013 Dog-Eared Page. My heart was strangely moved as I contemplated the microcosm of the author’s cell and how he saw in it the macrocosm of all humankind. Such small details as the drop of blood of the title or a smile from a guard made him see humanity in its entirety. I was encouraged by his example to try to live more in the moment, because each moment is really a lifetime.
