I am currently reading, Walden by Henry David Thoreau. I just finished reading Ray Bradbury: An Illustrated Life. I am going to read Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.


"Witness and Celebrate."

The postman brought me MASKS today, in a nice slipcase, too.

I may have to take off a day from work to catch up on all my reading...either that or just close my office door tomorrow. Wink

Government employees have doors now? Over here, you're lucky to get a Dilbert-style cubicle!

Doug: Thirty-one years at any job has its perks.
Phil: Yes, a real door and walls covered with Bradbury posters.

In case somebody notices...the red doodle on the slipcase is upside down. (on my picture not on Gauntlet's slipcase)

Holloween spirts? Sounds like someone else might have been at the spirts!

jkt is, I believe, a teetotaler.

Just a lefty in a right handed world. I put the book back in unside down.

Ray signed a copy of Bach's Biplane yesterday, the edition where he wrote the introduction.

The strongest drink I'll imbibe is a cuppa Earl Grey tea.

Almost done with the Rahsaan bio.
Of course, I read Bradbury on the 31st; "Skeleton", it was.
Nobody writes like this man!

In fact, I really do wish more thought, time, and keystrokes would be spent on this site (especially by its regular contributors!) in discussing his works.
All too often the bulk of postings is so much self-absorbed twaddle.
Like Rahsaan was wont to say, "Im not bitter, just bitter-sweet".
But, really!
When was the last time patrask, for instance, posted anything remotely Bradburian?
But, I digress, and verge onto other threads myself.

OK.
Also enjoying the Audiobook version of
"The mysterious West - stories of suspense" selected by Tony Hillerman.

Tomorrow, in celebration of Barack Obama's victory, we should all read The Other Foot. It was written so long ago, and was so on target for how it treated race relations. Surprisingly, this election has not been much about race, and that is as it should be. Novus Ordo Seclorum.
