Happy Birthday, June!

To Everyone Born in June May your reservoir of coolness never run dry. “It’s my game. I pitch, I hit, I catch. I run the bases. At sunset, I’ve run or lost. At sunrise, I’m out again, giving it the old try.” Ray Bradbury

Happy Birthday, May!

To Everyone Born in May May you always make waves. “I grow old…I grow old… I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled. I shall wear white flannel trousers and walk upon the beach. I have heard the mermaids singing each to each.” T. S. Eliot

“Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng

Published 2017 ~ 600 pages No Mystery I like mysteries. I like stories in which there are problems to solve, clues to unravel, and things to figure out. However, if I am reading a mystery, I don’t like to be kept waiting about what the mystery is. I like to know right away what the…

“The Art of War” by Sun Tzu

Translated by Thomas Cleary 1988 ~ 172 pages A Red Berry Sometimes the red berries are found in unexpected books – even non-fiction books. I first read The Art of War over twenty years ago. I was surprised at all the red berries I found in the book. My favorite one is this: “Plan for…

Kings River

March 2022 This is Geoff Kersey’s watercolor lesson #12. Jack and I go to Cricket Hollow Park when the weather is warm just to watch Kings River amble by. In the spring, the snow melt speeds up the ambling, which makes me wonder: Do rivers like to be rushed? If I’m in the mood to…

Cambria Pine

March 2022 Note to self: Well-meaning suggestions from kind-hearted people can be a real drag; I mean, it’s so tiring having to fend them off.

Happy Birthday, March!

To Everyone Born in March May you always have a question for every answer. “A hobby is a defiance of the contemporary.
