Tuck Everlasting


If you could live forever, would you want to?

This is the question that Tuck Everlasting raises and offers answers to.

When I was first introduced to the story a few years ago I hated it. I didn’t read the book but I saw the movie which was enough at the time. I thought it was horribly depressing and couldn’t see why anyone would want to make a movie out of such a sad tale. Now however, studying it from a philosophical and emotional standpoint I understand what a great masterpiece it truly is.

Told in around the 1880’s in the book version and the 1910’s in the movie format, Tuck Everlasting is told from the perspective of Winifred Foster. Winnie hates her life. She wishes that her parents and grandmother would leave her be to run her life as she wishes. One day Winnie decides that she is leaving. Off she goes into the woods where she stumbles across Jessie Tuck, and with him a secret. Along with the knowledge of the secret comes a great choice: an eternity of everlasting time or returning to her life and progress forward into the unknown.

The New York Times describes it as. “A fearsome and beautifully written book that can’t be put down or forgotten.” I can personally testify that this is true. I cried when watching the movie and came to my own conclusions on the books moral. Completely worthy of five stars, and a supreme read.

Ah, Satisfaction.

If you ignore the image quality and look at the content you see a beautiful (and organized!) array of beads. I spent most of the morning sorting through them and now I feel like I didn’t waste my time this morning! So far my Summer has been quite productive. Dare I say more so than the school year? Yeah. Definitely because I’m doing things that I like to do.

Tuesdays With Jane

“This little circumstance seemed the completion of all that had gone before. She understood him. He could not forgive her,- but he could not be unfeeling. Though condemning her for the past, and considering it with high and unjust resentment, though perfectly careless of her, and though becoming attached to another, still he could not see her suffer, with the desire of giving her relief. It was a remainder of former sentiment; it was an impulse of pure, though unacknowledged friendship; it was a proof of his own warm and amiable heart, which she could not contemplate without emotions so compounded of pleasure and pain, that she knew not which prevailed.”

Jane Austen, Persuasion
