South and West, Joan Didion

I've finished reading "South and West: From a Notebook" by Joan Didion. At one hundred and twenty-six pages, this was a quick read. If you've been following along you've probably gathered that I've become a fan of Joan Didion's writing. I am familiar with her cadence, her style. I often refer to her as "Saint… Continue reading South and West, Joan Didion

When Half-Gods Go

Here we are, can you believe it, going into September. Where does the time go? I'm still reading Carl Sandburg's big book of Abraham Lincoln. I've no words adequate to do it justice.

End of the Summer Stuff

It is the end of the Summer. I've been doing end of the Summer stuff.

I noticed this after watching an episode of… Continue reading End of the Summer Stuff

Let's out deep breath wishes another cup of tea would make itself and bring itself upstairs to me... It is October. Not only is it October, it is three weeks into October. We got home from a few days respite in July to a slew of home improvement projects that, for one reason or another,… Continue reading There Is A Season

Loyalty, Love, Lies, and Growing Up Dead In Texas.

The title of this post should also include the words, "Masterful Story Telling." My review of Growing Up Dead in Texas, by Stephen Graham Jones. If there's anyway for me to review this book without relating to you how it spoke to me, well, I don't know what that way is. In that, to me,… Continue reading Loyalty, Love, Lies, and Growing Up Dead In Texas.
