I first saw her in Big Love where she played twin polygamous sister-wives.

That sounds interesting. :yikes:

Re: M Train Question #16: Why This Book?

nebraska, your's is a very good answer. I don't know that Liz or I thought about the business side of things, and it makes perfect sense to have a book come out during a 40th anniversary year. It will multiply the sales she receives. Went right over my head. :dunce: So it follows then that the obje...

Re: M Train Question #15 - Valley of the Lost Things

A couple of months ago I lost a ring that I bought the last time I was in Austin, TX. I loved that ring. I keep hoping it will turn up, but it hasn't yet. Still crossing my fingers. :hope: I also lost a favorite pair of eye glasses. Had them for over 11 years. I lost them when we went to my daughte...

Re: M Train Question #13: Patti Says.....

:highfive: I'll go with Nebraska's answer, too. This did seem to be a very close-up and personal look into Patti's world. But I haven't read anything else by her, so not sure if her approach here is different from her other books. I read Just kids when ONBC discussed it. I would say M Train is defi...

M Train Question #15 - Valley of the Lost Things

Pg. 241: FRED HAD a cowboy, the only cowboy among his cavalry. He was molded from red plastic, slightly bowlegged, and pointed to shoot. Fred called him Reddy. At night Reddy was not returned into a cardboard box with the rest of the components of Fred’s small fortress but set on a low bookcase nex...

Re: M Train Question #12 - The Killing

The Bridge sounds interesting, but I've never seen it. I rarely let a show go that I like a lot. I've had a very hard time letting the following go: ER, Knott's Landing, Picket Fences, Parenthood, Downton Abbey, LOST, All My Children And there have been many more. I was ok with Revenge because it g...

M Train Question #12 - The Killing

On Page 239 of the chapter entitled “How Linden Kills the Thing She Loves” Patti talks about how hard it is to let go of Linden in the show The Killing.

Have you ever felt that way about a TV show or its character(s)? If so, which one(s) and why?

Re: M Train Question #11: My Alamo

I think the reason Patti called it her Alamo is because she was going to stay there and defend it, despite the odds (Hurricane Sandy, among other challenges). I love my house, but I don't think that I think of it as an Alamo. Maybe I will feel that way about a future dwelling. I don't know. The cur...

Re: M Train Question #9: Devastating Books

I think many books stay with us and become a part of our fabric. The devastating books for me are those that temporarily alter reality. So you are present, a body at least, in your ordinary life, but actually living between the pages of a book. There have been many books that have "permeated&q...

Re: M Train Question #10 - Love

I've experienced it to some degree in all of my relationships--some more than others. I think it may have to do with my personality and sensitivity. And I never do anything in moderation. Plus I'm a romantic. It seems to coincide with my desire to make pilgrimages too. When I fall for someone, I us...

Re: M Train Question #6 - Another type of Dream

Nebraska wrote; They tell us we all dream, but we only remember them if we are not sleeping soundly so it makes sense that the emotions are disturbing ones. I always remember them, and I never sleep to well. I wonder if nice dreams excist? Do people have dreams that are not disturbing? I only have ...

Re: M Train Question #2: Parents and Other Grown-Ups

I think that is true of most people, you find you have lived your life but life has passed you by. :highfive: I think many people spend most of their lives doing what is expected and living to please others. We rarely have a chance to think about what pleases us. But I think at some point we start ...
