5:47 AM Sunday August 5th, sunrise over Bernard, cottage on Seal Pond.
What's the the blue dot?
Driving (rain) day, yesterday, rest day too, Lincoln NH to Mount Desert Island ME.
Woke up yesterday in downpour, drove through downpour, it's 7:20 Saturday in the cottage we always stay in as I type this sentence, it's downpouring now. Tomorrow supposed to be nice.
260 miles (by car) almost but not quite due east, MDI from Lincoln.
Look what was waiting for me - I knew I'd left it somewhere.
I am telling you three times this is where I get the I am telling you three times, though I am telling you three times it's the best reading experience - three times - of the last ten years of my life.
Read the hardback the first time, bought that paperback and read the second time, intended to read it the third time but left it here (unbeknownst to me - I just knew I lost it), bought a new one for the third reading, anyone want this one?
I'm booked this vacation, and 4th reading scheduled for next summer.
I have read many of the Vollman articles you've linked to, and I've also read Poor People. Perhaps it's time to try out his fiction. Unless there is a more deserving candidate, I'm willing to take the volume off your hands.ReplyDelete
None more deserving - DM me your address, though I won't be able to send until I'm back from Maine and can use the free shipping from work.Delete
Hummingbirds have a great sense of curiosity and humor. They are very cool.
Should mention, I too was checked out by a hummingbird. This evening on a friend's back patio.ReplyDelete
Later, I spent about fifteen minutes hanging out with a weary butterfly on a little red bench just off downtown's main drag on a quiet little side street.
