A bad book is as much of a labour to write as a good one; it comes as sincerely from the author's soul.
— Aldous Huxley
This Five Star Friday roundup is brought to you by a friendship list, autism, disclaimers, clarity of vision, Roman Polanski, growing older in a body, death, a burger, a break-up, self-loathing, building strong children, books, a shift in gaze, tough love, and a bad relationship.
And while we're at it, be loud and proud and share one of your own good weblog entries in the comments.
