Save your dreams

“Grown people were so strangely oblivious to the truly important things of life. Material for new garments, of night or day, could be bought in any shop for a trifling sum and made up out of hand. But if a dream escape you, in what market-place the wide world over can you hope to regainContinue reading “Save your dreams”

I have and I haven’t

I haven’t updated the home page on my website in more than a year, so if you haven’t been reading this blog you couldn’t know that I released Gladness is Infectious or 24 flashes or updated A Little Volume of Secrets and Resistance to Civil Government and Letters to the Citizens of the United StatesContinue reading “I have and I haven’t”

3 brilliant books

Circumstances have put me in the car alone a lot more lately, and my preferred electronic companion on the highway is an audiobook. I’ve been choosing wisely of late.

The immortal part of man

I am reading Farnham’s Freehold, a somewhat dated Robert A. Heinlein novel about a family thrown 1,000 years into the future by a thermonuclear bomb. I was attracted to the book by this quote a friend posted on Facebook: “The last books in the world, so it seemed. He felt sudden grief that the abstractContinue reading “The immortal part of man”

I encounter my heroine, and she’s not happy

“There you are, Jeep!” I said to young Ms. Thompson the other day. “I haven’t heard from you for awhile.” “Oh, there YOU are,” she said back, seeming a little cross. “So you didn’t forget me after all.” “No, no, I think about you all the time. I stopped hearing your voice.” “Right. Me andContinue reading “I encounter my heroine, and she’s not happy”
