Out of town. Away. Other. Somewhere else. Anywhere else. New, old sights and sounds. Anything but the daily, same old same old mind-trap. A new view. A new view, even if it’s one you’ve seen before.
Partial City Skyline at Sunset. Hometown. It’s always good to see you.
Books. Borrowed books. A new rhythm, a new attitude, a new mind-altitude.
East to the Dawn

“An author never has a vacation. He’s a walking sponge, sopping up impressions till he’s saturated, then going to his desk and squeezing them out on paper.”-Ben Ames Williams, Leave Her to Heaven

I am gearing up for a fun little project by rereading Leave Her to Heaven.
Leave Her to Heaven by Ben Ames Williams.
For my friend Glen, who died yesterday.
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote
“Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep.”-William Shakespeare, The Tempest
