Libraries

They are tearing down the library to make a larger one, one more spick and span, with shiner selves I suppose. I rather liked the old metal book racks and sun-beaten, semi-Spanish architecture. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they say; it's nostalgia that mists my view. But the old is giving way... Continue Reading →

Anyway, here I am now, recapping the first month... Continue Reading →

People talk about being bored in the... Continue Reading →

Writing, Release, and Summer

Summer in all its chlorine scented, air conditioned, peach hued, iced coffee glory is finally here. Finally. I almost don't believe it.

The next three months will pass quickly, they always do, but I welcome their release.... Continue Reading →
