    Idk why I feel empty sometimes.

    The Unbearable Lightness Of Being

    This is a book by Milan Kundera that I've been reading for a long time.  It hasn't taken so long because it's a difficult book, but because the writing hits so hard.  Anyone reading or posting stories to this group (experience?) would probably appreciate Unbearable...
